Barbara's notes for this recipe:
Great recipe to have over the holidays when you are so busy with guest. Just pop it in the oven in the morning, sit around the table talking over a cup of coffee, while your french toast is cooking. Serve with fruit.

Barbara, how much nutmeg would you put in the casserole?

What I do is just sprinkle the cinnamon on top. Just a little bit, but I love the smell of nutmeg. Please let me know if I can help any more.
