1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cream, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Put half of the mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Add half of the sliced challah bread to the pan and let soak, flipping after a few minutes.
2. While bread is soaking, preheat the Cuisinart® GreenGourmet® Electric 14-inch Skillet to 300°F. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to melt. Once butter has melted, add the soaked challah bread to the Skillet. Sprinkle with ½ teaspoon of the cinnamon sugar. After about 6 to 8 minutes, flip, sprinkle with another ½ teaspoon of the cinnamon sugar and finish cooking for an additional 6 to 8 minutes.
3. While the first batch of French toast is cooking, add the remaining batter to the baking pan and repeat soaking the remaining challah slices.
4. Remove the first batch from the Skillet and keep warm in a 200°F oven. Add the remaining tablespoon of butter and repeat cooking the second batch in the same manner.
5. Serve with warm maple syrup, fresh fruit, or our Easy Bananas Foster (page 17).
