    Spread the butter on the sliced bread, then cut the bread into cubes. Place bread cubes in the bottom of a 1-1/2 quart baking dish (one that will fit into the pan of water).

    Stir together the brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, and nutmeg until well mixed. Sprinkle evenly over the bread.

    May be served with whipped cream, or topped with a hard sauce. See my recipe for Orange Hard Sauce below. I like pouring the hot Orange Hard Sauce over the entire casserole before serving.
