J.B.'s French Toast

Combine eggs, milk, nutmeg and salt in shallow bowl, stirring briskly so mixture is blended well and uniform in color.


Crumble corn flakes slightly (to make each flake about half its original size) and spread them in a layer on a piece of wax paper.


Dip (don’t soak) both sides of each slice of bread in milk batter. Press each slice of bread into corn flakes to coat well.


Melt 2 tablespoons butter in 12-inch skillet over medium heat and fry 3 slices of bread until golden brown on each side, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. When done, sprinkle about 1 tablespoon sugar on top of each slice and keep warm in 225-degree oven while frying other 3 slices in remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Serve hot.
