Decadent Bread

A truly sinful breakfast dish. With the spice of nutmeg and the warmth of the bread itself, this dish lives up to its name. This dish can be made the night before, creating a rich and delicious convenience.

1 loaf of French bread cut into 1 1/2" slices
2 eggs
3/4 c. sugar
1 c. half and half
1/2 c. (1 stick) melted butter
1 T vanilla extract
1 tsp ground nutmeg

Place the bread slices in a glass baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix the remaining ingredients and pour half of the mixture over the bread. Let stand 5-10 minutes and turn the slices over. Pour remaining egg mixture over the bread and refrigerate overnight. Bake 40-50 minutes at 350 degrees. Garnish with fresh fruit.
