Nice easy and quick recipe, I boiled up some frozen peas, sweet corn and string beans, added those to the cooked leeks, just to get some extra veg in. Think next time I'll try with smashed up boiled potatoes instead of the bread.

Really nice recipe to use up old bread. I used a seeded loaf. I don't think it needs to be white. I reduced the cheese slightly, added a tea spoon of mustard and some sundried tomatoes. It was very tasty.

Tasty enough but needed quite a bit of seasoning to make it so! I found it a little dry so would add an extra egg next time to combat that, plus extra cheddar for a bit more punch.

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.
