Growing up in the country, I had never heard of French toast. when Donald and Liz married, she would make this for breakfast for her kids. I never wrote the recipe down, but this is how I remember her making it. Most people like it with butter and syrup; I like it with salt and pepper.
Break eggs into a wide, shallow bowl. Beat lightly with a fork.
Stir in the sugar, salt, black pepper, and milk.
Over medium low heat, heat a griddle or skillet coated with a thin layer of margarine.
Place bread slices, one at a time in the bowl with egg mixture. Let the slices soak up egg mixture for a few seconds, then carefully turn to the other side. Soak only as many slices as you will be cooking at one time.
Transfer bread slices to griddle or skillet, heating slowly until bottom is golden brown. Turn and brown on the other side. Serve warm.
