     Grease a 9 x 13 inch glass baking dish with the 1/2
   tsp. butter or margarine.  Arrange bread in one layer
   in baking dish.
     In a large microwave safe bowl or pan, mix eggs,
   salt, sugar, milk and vanilla.  Place the bowl in the
   microwave and heat on HIGH for five (5) minutes,
   stirring twice.
     For heating on the range, place the egg mixture in a
   medium saucepan and heat on medium, stirring as
   needed, until hot, BUT NOT BOILING, about 5 minutes.
   Be careful not to let the mixture boil, because it
   will set the eggs.
     Pour the hot egg mixture gently over the bread
   slices and cover with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate at
   least 4 hours or overnight.....
     To bake - dot with the 2 tbsp. butter pieces and
   place uncovered pan in cold oven.  Bake at 350 degrees
   for 45 to 50 minutes, until bread is puffy and lightly
   brown. Remove from heat and let stand 5 minutes.
     Serve with Cary’s SF Syrup, sugar free jelly, or
   fresh fruit.
     Enjoy..... Converted by MMCONV vers. 1.00
