DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the bread in 2-inch wide pieces. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, herbs, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt, and the pepper. Add the bread, toss to coat, and let stand for 10 minutes, stirring gently every now and then to ensure even coating.
  • In the meantime, core the tomatoes and slice them horizontally in 1/3-inch slices. Let stand in a colander to drain for 5 minutes. Cut the sun-dried tomato halves in bite-size pieces.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and grease a large baking dish with 1 teaspoon olive oil. Arrange the tomato slices over the bottom of the dish, reserving nine of the most attractive for the top. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, drizzle with a little olive oil, and top with the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes.
  • Arrange the bread over the tomatoes, pour the remaining egg mixture over the dish, top with the reserved tomato slices, and sprinkle with cheese. (This can be prepared up to 8 hours ahead, covered tightly and refrigerated).
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, until heated through. Switch to broiler setting and broil for 5 minutes, keeping an eye on the dish, until the cheese is golden and the bread is crisp at the edges. Serve with a salad of mixed greens.
