In a small saucepan, combine caramel ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until bubbling. Pour sauce into a 13″x9″ baking dish. Place slices of bread on top of the sauce, crowding if necessary. Combine eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a blender. Pour evenly over bread.
