Those crazy continentals eat their French toast as a sweet dish, served with jam or sugar. When I was growing up, my mam used to give us either sausages, bacon or golden syrup with our French toast.
Anyway, for a bit of nostalgia, you will need some day-old, sliced bread, one egg per slice (depending on the thickness and size - for UK sliced bread, it's one egg per slice, for Belgian bread, you'll get two slices per egg) and a dribble of milk. I aim for two slices of toast per person.
Beat the eggs and the milk in a large, flat dish with a little salt and pepper. Heat your frying pan and dip the sliced bread into the eggy mixture, one side after the other.
Fry the eggy bread in a little oil for about 2 minutes on each side – until it’s golden brown.
