Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Grease a baking dish and fill with the torn bread. Heat the butter in a large pan until it starts to foam. Add the leeks and garlic, and cook over a medium heat for 5 mins, stirring as you go. Spoon softened leek mixture over the bread and top with cherry tomatoes.

  2. Beat together the eggs, milk and cheddar. Season, then pour over the bread and bake for 15-20 mins until golden and puffy. Serve with ketchup, if you like.

Just made this for my 3 kids and husband. None of us liked it - the bread was too soggy and the texture was rubbery. In future I'll omit the bread and use the ingredients to make a quiche or a tortilla. Disappointing, because it sounded so tasty.
