foodlover's picture
  Eggs 5 Small, beaten
  Milk 4 Tablespoon
  Gruyere 5 Ounce, grated (140 Grams)
  Chopped chives 1 Tablespoon, chopped
  Butter 1 Tablespoon
  Baguette 1 Large, thickly sliced
  Cherry tomatoes on the vine 9 Ounce (250 Grams)
  Olive oil 4 Tablespoon (For Grilling)
  Sliced ham 9 Ounce (About 25 Slices, 250 Grams)
  Watercress 2 Tablespoon (For Serving)

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.
