To serve

  • spinach & cucumber salad
  • Chutney


  • Heat oven to 180°C bake. Cook the bacon. In a jug, whisk the milk and eggs together, and season with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  • 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.
  • Arrange the bread slices, overlapping, in the baking dish. Tuck the bacon, cherry tomatoes and mushrooms in around the bread slices.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the bread (gently push the slices down in the liquid if need be). Leave to stand for 5 mins. Scatter the cheese and basil leaves over the top, then bake for 25–30 minutes until golden and just set. Garnish with extra basil leaves and serve with a spinach & cucumber salad and tomato chutney.
