2 cups cubed dry bread
4 cups milk, scalded
1 Tbsp. butter
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4 cup sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup raisins


Use the butter to grease a 2-quart baking dish. Beat the eggs in the dish. Set aside. Scald the milk in a sauce pan. Soak the bread in the hot milk, add salt, sugar, vanilla, and raisins. Pour over eggs in baking dish, stir lightly. Sprinkle generously with nutmeg. Bake at 350 degrees until firm, about 50 minutes. Cover tightly the last 10 minutes if it starts to get too brown on top. This will puff up, then settle back down in the dish. Good hot or cold.
