• 1 loaf day-old brioche bread, slides 1" thick
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 Cups milk
  • 1 tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ Cup sugar
  • syrup, for serving


In large bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar and milk. Add cinnamon and nutmeg; whisk to combine.

Layer bread slices in shallow baking dish and pour over egg mixture; let stand until bread begins to absorb liquid, about 2 to 3 minutes. Turn bread slices and let bread absorb liquid on opposite side for 2 to 3 minutes more.

Preheat Indoor/Outdoor Grill to setting 4.

Add 3 to 4 slices of soaked bread to grill top and cook until golden brown and crisp. Turn bread and cook until golden brown and crisp on opposite side, adding butter as necessary to help browning and to give French toast nutty flavor.

Transfer French toast to baking sheet in oven to keep warm while grilling remaining slices. Repeat process with remaining butter and soaked bread.

Serve French toast immediately after dusting with Confectioners' sugar, and topping with syrup, and fresh fruit or bacon, if desired.
