Make-ahead French Toast Sticks

2 eggs
1/2 c icing sugar
1/4 c milk
2 T maple syrup
1 t brown sugar
1/4 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
8 slices white bread, each cut into 4 strips
3 T butter

In a shallow dish, beat together the eggs, sugar, milk, maple syrup, brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg with a fork until well blended. Dip each bread strip into the egg mixture, coating completely. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Cook the bread strips a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden, adding more butter as needed. Serve immediately or cool completely, flash freeze on cookie sheet, then store in a labeled freezer bag. To serve: reheat in the oven, toaster oven, or microwave until heated through. Makes 32 sticks.
