Serves 6

Preparation 10 minutes

Cooking 20 minutes


  • 5 eggs , beaten
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 140g Gruy√®re , grated
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives
  • knob of butter
  • 1 large baguette , thickly sliced
  • 250g cherry tomatoes on the vine
  • olive oil , for grilling
  • 250g sliced ham - about 25 slices

  1. Heat the grill to high. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, cheese and chives. Melt the butter in a large non-stick pan over a medium heat. Dip slices of bread into the egg mixture, then place them in the pan. Cook for 3-5 mins on each side, or until golden and crisp, then keep warm in a low oven if you need to.
  2. Place the vine tomatoes on a baking tray, drizzle with a little oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill until they start to soften and blister. On a large platter, pile up the cheesy French bread, grilled tomatoes, sliced ham and a pile of watercress, and let everyone dig in.
