  • 1 Loaf Brioche (400g)
  • 1 Whole Garlic Bulb
  • 2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 150g Salted Butter, plus extra for greasing, softened
  • 4 tbsp Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • 6 Eggs
  • 300mL Whole Milk
  • 200mL Double Cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C (170C Fan).

  2. Using a serrated knife, slice the very top of the garlic bulb off. Rub with the olive oil and wrap tightly in foil. Roast for 40-45 minutes until the cloves are soft and lightly caramelised.

  3. Once the garlic is cooled squeeze the contents of each clove into a bowl and mash with a fork. Blend in the softened butter & thyme leaves.

  4. Spread the butter mixture over both sides of each slice of brioche.

  5. Grease a 30cm x 20cm roasting dish with butter. Arrange the brioche slices in one overlapping layer so they all fit in snugly.

  6. In a large jug whisk together the eggs, milk & double cream. Pour this mixture evenly over the brioche.

  7. Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the egg mixture is set and the top is a crusty golden brown.
