  3. Pour sauce into a sprayed 9 x 13-inch baking pan. Arrange 7 bread slices in pan.
  4. Spread preserves evenly over bread and top with remaining 7 slices.
  5. In a bowl, combine milk, eggs, vanilla extract, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Pour over bread and sprinkle with almonds.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Cool for 5 minutes and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
