Serves: 6
  • 4 slices white bread
  • 5 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 1/2 Cups milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 Cups brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • Half-and-half; (optional)
  1. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter an 8-inch-square pan or baking dish.
