Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Slice the Texas toast into 3 columns so you have "sticks".
Next, place the eggs, milk, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract in a large bowl and mix together with a handheld whisk until well combined.
Place a large skillet on the stove top and set the heat to medium-high. Melt the butter in the skillet until completely melted.
In batches, take 3-4 slices of bread and dip them into the egg mixture, one at a time. Soak for about 3-4 seconds each until they're slightly saturated. Place each slice in the skillet where the butter has melted.
Let each piece cook for about 4-5 minutes and then flip using a spatula. Each piece should look like this when flipped over. If you don't have that golden brown glow on each piece, you flipped them over too soon. Once you turn the toast over, cook until the other side is browned. Repeat with the remaining slices.
Once all the slices have been browned, place them on a cookie sheet. Bake each piece for 7-10 minutes. The goal is to get the each piece of bread to a slight crisp.
Remove from the oven, serve on a plate, and add butter and syrup.
