Mix in eggs, milk, sugar, nutmeg, baking soda, butter and salt. Pour into two greased 2-quart casseroles. (If desired, batter can be frozen at this point.) Place casseroles in a shallow pan with water covering the bottoms of the casserole dishes. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes. If frozen before baking, bread will not rise quite as much.
