Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Mix the butter and garlic together, then use a little to grease a shallow baking dish or tin. Use the rest to butter the bread slices, then cut them in half diagonally.

  • STEP 2

    Arrange the bread slices, overlapping, in the baking dish. Tuck the cherry tomatoes and ham in and around them.

  • STEP 3

    Whisk the milk and eggs together, and season with salt and pepper. Pour over the bread and gently push the slices down in the liquid. Leave to stand for 5 mins. Scatter the cheese over the top, then bake for 35-40 mins until golden and just set. Serve with a crisp green salad.
