Directions:
Butter a 13" x 9" glass baking dish. Cut twelve 1 inch think diagonal slices from the bread. Generously butter one side of each slice and arranges slices buttered sides up in one layer in buttered dish, squeezing them slightly to fit if necessary.
Whisk together eggs, milk and salt in a bowl until well combined, add the vanilla and nutmeg and then pour evenly over bread. Refrigerate, covered, until bread has absorbed all of the custard, at least one hour, but can be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 425. Bring bread to room temperature.
Sprinkle bread with sugar. Place in oven on middle rack and bake until bread is puffed and top is golden, 20 to 25 minutes.
Serve immediately with maple syrup.
