Ingredients:  
1 loaf sliced challah
6 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups half-n-half
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions:
Grease a 9X13 pyrex and arrange the challah slices overlapping one another. Beat together the eggs, milk, half-n-half, vanilla extract, nutmeg and cinnamon. Pour over and in between the slices of challah. When pouring the liquid over the bread, pour off excess liquid and redistribute over the bread. This may have to be done several times until all liquid has been absorbed. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350. If any liquid remains in the morning, redistribute it over the casserole so that it will cook evenly. Spread the topping over the mixture.

Bake for 45-55 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
