Preheat a griddle over medium heat. In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggs, milk, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange peel and vanilla. Place bread slices into egg mixture so that both sides are covered and it has soaked in a bit. Place the bread slices on the preheated griddle and cook until they are heated through and a deep golden brown on both sides. Place on a plate and top with desired amount of grass-fed butter and spiced maple syrup.
