This Cheese bread and butter healthy recipe  isn’t what it seems – it’s called a bread and butter bake, but there’s no butter in sight.

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
  • 7 slices day-old grainy bread
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 cup trim milk
  • 2 teaspoons mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika

Method

Step 1 Preheat oven to 190°C. Soften onions in a non-stick pan with oil. Add garlic and herbs. Cook for a few more minutes.

Step 2 Arrange half in a lightly greased, large ovenproof dish. Cut bread in half.  Scatter over onions. Add the remaining bread.

Step 3 Beat eggs together with mustard, paprika and milk. Pour over bread and press down. If you have time, leave to stand for 10 minutes.
