    1 hour 5 minutes

    Gammon (or similar ham) and cherry tomatoes make a tasty savoury version of a great bread and butter pudding. No reason to chuck that stale bread out.

    1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees C. Grease a 1.2 litre casserole dish.

    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until puffed up and golden. Serve immediately.
