Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/gas 5/fan 170C and butter a shallow 2-litre dish. Tip the spinach into a colander in the sink and pour a kettleful of boiling water over it. Leave it to wilt while you make the cheesy base. (Or microwave the spinach according to the packet instructions.)

  2. Break the eggs into the bowl of a food processor, pour in the milk, add the mustard and 1 tsp salt. Tear in the bread, crusts and all, then whizz together until smooth. Tip the mixture into a large bowl and grate in three-quarters of the cheese.

  3. Squeeze the spinach, to get rid of all the water, then stir it into the cheese mixture and tip into the dish. Grate over the remaining cheese, top with the tomato clusters and bake for 30-35 minutes until risen and golden. Cool and allow to settle a little before serving.

I thought this was quite nice but my two teenagers weren't so keen. Quick and easy but took longer in the oven.

Definitely cook for a good twenty minutes more at a higher temperature.

I had to increase the cooking time too to about 50mins. I really liked it but it left me feeling a little sick at the end of the serving due to the amount of cheese

I made this for tea last night....I only put in a teaspoon of mustard powder, despite the recipe saying TBSP, it was quite strong still! It also took about an hour to cook and was still runny in the centre. I agree with the other comments that this could be a good recipe for children. However, we thought the texture was odd, probably be better if the bread was cut into triangles, like a savoury bread and butter pudding?! All in all I would not recommend

I have a very hot fan oven but this took much longer than the recipe suggested to cook and in the end I had to put the heat up to the maximum as the children were waiting for their dinner! It was easy to make other than that and a small amount tasted nice but I found that the taste palled after a few bites. It does seem to be a good way of getting children to eat egg if they don't like it when it looks like egg but the spinach put my awkward child off all together!
