      Make-Ahead French Toast
      1 Loaf of Bread
      8 eggs (I use Egg Substitute instead of real eggs)
      1 cup Milk
      1/2 cup sugar (optional)
      1 teaspoon vanilla
      1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
      1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
      Preheat oven to 500 degrees
      In medium bowl, beat together all ingredients until well blended. Pour half of the egg mixture in to a square baking pan.
      Place 4 of the bread slices in the egg mixture. Turn slices and then remove to a prepared baking sheet (I use a cookie sheet with a silicone no-stick sheet lightly sprayed with cooking spray).
      Repeat with remaining egg mixture and bread slices.
      Bake for 6 minutes.

      Turn slices. Continue baking until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes. Serve immediately or freeze for later use.
      Makes 16 servings.
      To Freeze: Cool toast slices on wire rack.

      Return to baking sheets.
      Freeze in single layer 1 to 2 hours. Wrap individual serving portions or stack slices and wrap. (I wrap two slices together in plastic wrap for individual servings.

      Then I place them back in to the bread bake for convenient storage in my freezer). Return to freezer and store up to one month.
      To serve Frozen Toast: Reheat single servings in toaster or place unwrapped slices on un-greased baking sheets and bake in preheated 375 degree oven until hot about 8-10 minutes.

      Sounds wonderful. French toast stix are one of the splurges I do for the grandkids when they stay the night. A couple of questions though.

      Would these be to bland if you left out the cinnamon and nutmeg? My 5 year old grandson won’t eat cinnamon. And if I left out the cinnamon and nutmeg should I leave out the vanilla also?

      Leaving out the cinnamon and nutmeg will change the flavor, but if you leave out the vanilla…it will be a bland breakfast. If your grandkids can handle the vanilla, leave it in. If they can’t handle such a mild flavoring, I suggest adding berrries — slice of toast, a few berries (thinly sliced strawberries would be exceptional), then another layer of toast. Cut up as stacked for your wee ones and they will probably be quite pleased;-D A bite of French toast sandwiching a bit of berrygiggle smiley
