Instructions

  1. French Toast: Make a horizontal pocket in each bread slice; set aside.
  2. Combine cream cheese, sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon, stirring well. Spoon about 1 1/2 tablespoons mixture into each bread slice, spreading evenly. Place 8 slices in a buttered 13 x 9-inch baking dish and 4 slices in a buttered 8-inch square baking dish.
