HEAT oven to 500°F. BEAT eggs and milk in large bowl until blended. POUR 1/2 of the egg mixture into 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan. PLACE 6 bread slices in pan; turn slices over and let stand until egg mixture is absorbed. PLACE bread in single layer on well-greased baking sheet.
REPEAT with remaining egg mixture and bread, using a second baking sheet.
BAKE in 500°F oven 6 minutes. TURN slices over; spread with butter, if desired. BAKE until golden brown and no visible liquid egg remains, 3 to 4 minutes longer. SERVE or FREEZE for later use.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
