Swiss Eibrot (French toast bites)

It's been quite some time since I posted a recipe, so for my return, I thought I'd post a recipe I have loved since my childhood. My grandmother's parents immigrated from Switzerland and brought with them some of their favorite dishes. The one I remember the most growing up was Swiss Eibrot (egg bread), though we called it something else that I have no idea how to spell. Eibrot is basically French toast in bite size pieces. It's really that simple.

5-6 pieces of heavy bread (don't use Wonder as it won't hold up well)
4 eggs
1/4 C milk
dash of cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp vanilla

In a medium bowl, break the bread into bite size pieces. In a separate bowl, mix all other ingredients. Pour over bread and mix until it is well coated.

Coat bottom of fry pan with cooking spray and heat on medium.

Pour bread and egg mix into pan and fry, stirring frequently (almost constantly) to ensure that all sides of the pieces get cooked and turn a nice golden brown.

Serve with syrup, powder sugar, or whatever you like on your French toast.
