Place torn bread into a large bowl.
Pour the melted butter over bread, toss to cover all the bread.
Next mix together 1/2 C. of the sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Stir that into the bread to coat all the bread.
Place bread/sugar mixture into a 9x9 pan.
Beat together the eggs, vanilla, milk and
remaining sugar until the sugar is dissolved.
Pour over the bread and let "soak" for 15 minutes.
*If you are adding in raisins or choc.-chips sprinkle
them over the bread, before pouring the egg mixture on top.
Bake on center rack in oven for 30-40 minutes
or until a knife inserted into the center comes clean.
You can serve this hot or cold.
