Cherry Tomato Bread & Butter Pudding

I bought some cherry tomatoes yesterday and when I got home I realised I hadn't used many from last week.  There they were sitting in the bowl, mostly very ripe with the odd one that had to go in the compost.  I thought I had better use them before more got past their best and had to go out.  I had also bought a 'baton' loaf in Tescos last night for only 7p, reduced at the end of the day, it had already gone a bit soft by this morning so also needed using up.  Plenty of eggs in the basket, so I thought I'd make a sort of Bread & Butter pudding with roasted tomatoes.  

Cherry Tomato Bread & Butter Pudding

3 eggs
1/2 cup of milk
Approx 20 cherry tomatoes
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 a baton loaf (or french bread) sliced
a couple of knobs of butter
salt & freshly ground black pepper

First roast your tomatoes,  I put them on a non-stick baking tray with 1 tbsp olive oil and roasted for 15 minutes at 200C.  Meanwhile, butter your baking dish, small and deep rather than large and shallow, and beat together the three eggs, milk, salt & pepper.  Dip the bread slices in the egg mixture making sure that they are well soaked in egg, put a layer of the bread in the bottom of the dish.

Take the tomatoes out of the oven and put on top of the eggy bread, then put another layer of egg soaked bread over them.  Dot with butter and bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes at 160C.  Serve on it's own as a lunch or breakfast dish or with salad or vegetables as a main course.

Make sure the bread is really soaked in the egg mixture
Dot with butter
Bake until golden brown

I have to say that this was really delicious, the sweetness of the roasted tomatoes complemented the eggs and bread, I would definitely make it again.

Oh that looks really yummy Janice! Shame my lot wouldn't eat it ... I'd have to eat the lot :)

Mmm, I bet the sweet/sharp tomatoes were lovely with the bready, eggy, puddingines!

This looks delicious. I often make Nigella's 'Triple Cheese & Onion Strata' which uses baguette slices. Adding tomatoes would make a lovely variation. Thank you for the inspiration!

I love Bread and Butter but I've never thought of a savoury version before now. Will need to keep this in mind.

I've never had this but I know I would absolutely love it! My husband bought me a tomato plant for Mother's Day. Can't wait for garden fresh tomatoes! ;)

Oh, I meant to say, link exchange. =) Those look very wonderful. Breads like those are only sold here at specialty baking shops and cost quite a fortune.

Looks delicious... I shall try that, Janice! I made something similar from an old American cookbook but I felt it needed work. The American recipe didn't include eggs - I think you may have the answer!

This looks soooo delicious Janice, what an excellent way to use up food before it goes to waste!
