I decided I would share a recipe today since it has been a while. I guess I’m sticking with the baby shower theme too because this was the dish that I served at the baby shower along side the diaper cakes.
The first time I had this dish was at a fellowship day at our local Community Bible Study. Oh it was SO delicious!!! I got the recipe and was determined the next time I had a shower or a brunch this would DEFINITELY be on the menu. So here’s what you need: 1 loaf of french bread, dry white wine, eggs, tomatoes, basil pesto, milk, heavy cream, olive oil, salt and pepper, and smoked Gouda.
Slice the bread into slices that are about a half inch thick.
Combine half cup of wine and a cup of milk in a shallow dish.
Dip the bread slices into the wine and milk mixture pressing gently to remove any excess liquid. Then place in a large baking dish. Mine was 11 x 15 but a 9 x 13 will work as well. Drizzle with a little bit of olive oil.
Slice three tomatoes.
Layer half the tomatoes, half the cheese and half of the pesto over the bread. And repeat.
Beat the eggs with salt and pepper and pour evenly over the layers.
Then pour the cream evenly over the top.
Fix yourself a little snack because this needs to chill out in the fridge overnight!!
When you are ready to bake it, pull it out and let it sit at room temp for an hour and half. Then bake it at 350 degrees for one hour or until it’s puffed and golden brown.
Oh y’all these pics are making me want some right NOW!! It was great and a huge hit for the shower. My husband even liked it!! To me, this would also be perfect for a light lunch or supper with a salad added.
