    • 2tbsp pesto
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

    1. Set the oven to 200°C (gas mark 6).

    1. Measure the milk into a jug and add the eggs, pesto and seasoning. Whisk them together with a fork. Pour the mixture over the bread. Leave for about 5-10 mins, for the bread to soak up some of the liquid.
    1. Place the dish in the centre of the oven and bake for 20-30 mins, or until the bake is golden in colour and feels set to the touch when pressed lightly in the centre. Remove from the oven and serve immediately. (Not suitable for freezing).
