Cheesy Leek and Tomato Eggy Bread Bake recipe

Preparation Time: 20 minutes | Cooking Time: 30 minutes

A little bit like a savoury bread pudding, this recipe combines leeks, tomatoes, bread, cheese and eggs to create a delicious bake that's just perfect for a midweek dinner. Serve with chips and a good helping of ketchup.

Ingredients

  • 200g crusty white bread
  • 25g butter + a knob
  • 2 leeks
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 100g cherry tomatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • 200ml milk
  • 100g mature cheddar cheese, grated
  • Black pepper

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 180C. Halve and thinly slice the leeks. Thinly slice the garlic cloves and halve the cherry tomatoes.

  2. Grease a baking dish with a knob of butter. Tear the bread into chunks.

  3. Fill the baking dish with the torn bread. Melt the rest of the butter in a large pan and add the leeks and garlic. Fry for 5 minutes, stirring often, until soft. Scatter over the bread and top with tomatoes.

  4. Whisk together eggs, milk, cheese and a good pinch of black pepper. Pour evenly over the bread and veggies, then bake for 15-20 minutes or until the bread is golden and slightly risen.

If you like, add some fried mushrooms or sun-dried tomatoes to the veg mix. Recipe serves 4.
