45 Min.


250g butter , plus extra for greasing
200g crusty white bread , torn into chunks (all the better if it's a few days old)
2 leeks , thinly sliced
2 garlic cloves , finely chopped
100g cherry tomato , halved
4 eggs
200ml milk
100g strong cheddar , grated


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

Beat together the eggs, milk and cheddar. Season, then pour over the bread and bake for 15-20 mins until golden and puffy.
