Garlic Bread and Tomato Bake

You know how it is on a Saturday when you haven’t really planned what to eat for lunch?  Then suddenly you find that everyone is at home and looking expectantly for you to come up with something tasty for them to enjoy.

Well that’s what happened to me last Saturday.  What could I make? What did I have in the larder and fridge?

Garlic Bread and Tomato Bake
Serves 4


A single garlic baguette
6 tomatoes
4 eggs
100 ml milk
2 tbsp red pesto
75g grated cheddar
freshly ground pepper
A few basil leaves (optional)

 
  1. Pre – heat the oven to 180C
  2. Slice up the garlic bread and place in a buttered oven proof dish.
  3. Thickly slice the tomatoes and layer over the bread.
  4. Cover with 2 tablespoons of pesto.
  5. Beat the eggs and add the milk, pour it over the bread and tomatoes.
  6. Season with freshly ground pepper and cover with the grated cheese. 
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until risen and golden.
  8. Tear up a few basil leaves and scatter over the top.
  9. Serve with salad.
This is the ideal dish for the No Waste Food Challenge run by Elizabeth’s Kitchen.
 
 
 
 

And of course Credit Crunch Munch as this is a thrifty dish which will fill up the family at very little cost.   Credit Crunch Munch is run by Helen at Fuss Free Flavours and Camilla at Fab Food 4 All

What a fantastic idea to use up bits and pieces and make such a yummy dish. Almost like a savoury version of bread pudding. Super post. Sammie http://www.feastingisfun.com

Thanks Sammie, it is a savoury b&b pudding, works really well.

I find Saturday lunches are exactly the same in my house. I never really plan them and only thing about what to eat as it gets to late morning. This is a really tasty way of using up things left in the fridge.

Glad it's not just me, Corina!

This reminds me of Ready Steady Cook or a Masterchef challenge – you did a great job too! Very interesting idea with the eggs too.

Thanks Tracy, I've made savoury bread and butter puds before, you can throw pretty much anything in there.

What a gorgeous recipe – proper, ooey gooey comfort food! I don't think I'd be able to stop at just one piece! Thank you for sharing with the No Waste Food Challenge!

Always a pleasure to join you in using up those leftover bits and pieces!

Hahahaha. How very creative Janice. My Saturday moment ended with courgette flatbreads.

That sounds good Bintu, I take it you have a bit of a glut of courgettes?

utter genius!… The Viking would LOVE this. I am stealing this idea!

Steal away darling, I very much doubt if I'm the first to have done this.

This is so funny – it's very like a posh version of the first ever thing I was taught to cook…sliced bread, tomato, cheese (no pesto and white sliced bread). We called it 'a little supper' and I cooked it for my mum every weekend for a month apparently!

You are right Fiona. I've made it before but not with garlic bread, all the best ideas endure and are reinvented!

I am super late to the party, but wouldn't this be perfect for the last of the tomatoes that never seem to ripen properly? Thanks for sharing with #creditcrunchmunch

Quite possibly Helen, although I haven't tried that as I don't grow my own tomatoes.
