Beat (with a fork) egg, milk, vanilla, salt and pepper in a small bowl (big enough to fit a slice of bread). Dip each slice of bread in that mixture--make sure to dip both sides of each slice of bread. Place slices in frying pan sprayed with Pam (or you can melt butter). Brown bottom side, then flip to brown other side. Top with syrup, powdered sugar, fresh fruit --whatever you like.
