This wonderful recipe uses bread rather than pasta to make a hearty and mouthwatering bake with ham, cheese and tomato.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Heat the oil in a frying pan and cook the onions for a few mins, until beginning to turn golden. Stir in the garlic and cook for another min. Set aside to cool.
  2. In a baking dish, toss together the bread, grated mature cheese, pieces of ham and cherry tomatoes.
  3. Beat together the eggs with the mustard, Parmesan, milk and cooled onion mixture. Season and pour over the bread. Dot the mozzarella on top. Bake in the oven for 15-20 mins, until golden and puffed. Serve with a green salad.
