      Nigella rarely disappoints and this was a lovely little overnight breakfast recipe! We eat multigrain bread regularly and it worked well with this recipe. The mustard was a nice touch and we LOVE Worcestershire sauce, so that was a hit too! I sometimes find with Nigella , that her measurements are a little off, and I suspect that 1 to 1/4 cups of milk may be better in this recipe, and I will try that next time - the tops of the sandwiches got rather brown and they were not submersed under the eggy custard! I did try and push them down!! LOL! Overall a wonderful recipe that we both enjoyed and I will up the milk next time! Made for Hail the Chefs and VERY much enjoyed thanks! FT:-)

      My nine year old daughter loved this so much she has asked for it weekly since. It was easy to throw together and great for comfort food.

      The Dijon and Worcester really make this recipe. Perfect comfort food, I did find that you need to have a dish more on the small side so everything is squashed in that way the milk and egg cover the bread.
