1.  Put the eggs, milk, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt into a medium bowl.  Whisk to fully combine and pour into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

2.  Soak half of the bread in the milk mixture, turning so both sides are saturated.

3. Once grill is preheated, put the soaked bread on the hot griddle. *Cook 3 to 5 minutes per side. If all bread does not fit on the griddle plates at one time, soak remaining bread while first batch of French toast is cooking.

4.  Remove and reserve the cooked French toast in a warm oven and then repeat with remaining soaked bread if necessary.

5.  To serve, dust with confectioners’ sugar and top with fresh fruit and maple syrup, if desired.
