    PollyB's Note:

    The chore of making French toast on a weekday morning is standing over the stove when you're short on time. By assembling breakfast the night before, then letting the French toast bake instead of fry, you've got more time to get organized for the new day.

      This was simple to put together the night before and even more simple to put in the oven the next morning. I used both the nutmeg and the cinnamon and it gave it a tasty, eggnog-ish flavor. The pecans get toasted in the oven and add a bit of specialness to it. All in all, it's a keeper that I'll use again.

      This was delicious. I sliced the bread and let it dry out a bit for a few hours by setting on a wire rack before assembling. Got rave reviews from my brunch guests. Will certainly be keeping this recipe handy.

      I made this as breakfast in bed for my BF for Valentine's Day. It was very good french toast. I used both the cinnamon and nutmeg and we liked it that way. Next time I would add the chopped pecans to the egg mixture so that they stick to the french toast better. Thank you!
