In a shallow baking dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and brown sugar.
Melt the butter on a griddle or in a large skillet over medium heat. You should hear the butter sizzling, but you don't want it to burn so be careful not to leave it too long.
Dip both sides of the sliced bread into the egg mix. I don't let it soak longer than 4-5 seconds per side.
Place your french toast down and fry the bottom side until golden brown, flip, and repeat.
Continue doing this until all of the bread has been used. It should take 1-2 minutes to fry each side of the french toast, so make sure your heat isn't too high or too low.
Transfer your french toast to a serving plate, and dust with powdered sugar. Serve with your favorite toppings and sausage or bacon on the side!
This is by far the best french toast recipe. Not only does it hold up well with the challah bread, but the added brown sugar and nutmeg in the egg mixture brings it to life, packing a flavorful punch you didn’t know that your plain french toast was missing!
It’s so simple to make and tastes delicious with the different toppings I've listed for you. I especially love topping it with honey!
