  • Wipe the pan clean and set aside.
  • In a large shallow bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, cinnamon sugar, and nutmeg.
  • Place 4 slices of the bread in the egg mixture and let soak for about 2 minutes, turning once.
  • In the same frying pan over med-high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter.
  • Working with 4 slices at a time, transfer the soaked bread to the pan and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 4 minutes total.

  • Then soak and cook the remaining 4 bread slices, using the remaining 1 tablespoon butter.
  • Divide the french toast among warmed plates and top evenly with the pear and their sauce.
