“I have had this recipe so long, I don't even remember where I got it. Great for brunches as it serves up to 10 people easily. The recipe asks for white or whole wheat bread but I usually use 10 - 12 slices of french bread sliced 1" thick, and also sprinkle some ground nutmeg and cinnamon sugar on the top before baking.”
