This is a great way to use up stale bread (brown, white, grain), I make this in a muffin tray. It cooks quicker and makes a great afternoon tea.


4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
2 cups low-fat milk
1 cup cheese, grated
4 slices brown bread, cubed
4 to 5 cups of prepared vegetables, e.g.

– 1/4 medium head cauliflower, chopped
– 1 cup green beans chopped
– 1 medium onion sliced
– 7 medium mushrooms with stalks, sliced
– 1 medium tomato, sliced


Preheat oven to 180C
Beat eggs, mustard and milk together
Stir in cheese
Lightly grease a large, flat dish
Place bread in dish, then layer cauliflower pieces, beans, onion and mushrooms
Pour milk over vegetables and top with the finely sliced tomato
Bake in a 180C oven for 1 hour or until set


After step 2, place in a lightly greased microwave dish. Microwave on MEDIUM-HIGH for 30 minutes or until set.


This dish can be prepared the night before and cooked at breakfast. Use available vegetables such as peas, leek, pumpkin, sweet potato and broccoli.
