Directions:
Layer bread slices in buttered 11x13 inch baking dish. Combine eggs, sugar, milk, and vanilla. Mix together with a whisk. This step can also be done in the blender.

Pour mixture over layered bread. The bread may not absorb all the liquid. Save the extra egg-milk mixture. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Add the reserved liquid.

Place slices of butter evenly over top of bread pudding. Sprinkle bread pudding generously with brown sugar and nutmeg.

Bake in preheated 325-350F oven for 1 hour until pudding is puffed and golden, and knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature.
