  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 3/4 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 4 slices of bread

  1. Beat together the eggs, milk, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg.
  2. Dip slice of bread into the mixture, coating both sides.
  3. In a non-stick frying pan/skillet, melt ½ tbsp of butter on a medium heat.
