Cinnamon French Toast Strips
It's not hard to wake up when there is something this good waiting for you at the breakfast table. Each bite literally melts in your mouth. You don't have to be in France to do as the French do. It's the best thing since sliced bread.
2/3 cup granulated sugar
In a wide, shallow bowl, stir together sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and milk. Remove crusts from bread and cut each slice into 3 or 4 strips. Working with 1 strip of bread at a time, turn strips quickly in butter, coating them on all sides, letting any excess drip off, then turn them quickly in cinnamon mixture, coating them on all sides. Bake strips in lightly buttered jellyroll pan in upper third of a preheated 375 degree F oven for 10 minutes. Turn and bake 10 more minutes. Transfer with tongs to serving plate.
