Not the healthiest, but it's a great way to use an extra baguette that's gone stale. Also, this is a crowd pleaser (caaamon - everyone loves bread) and budget-friendly! Wahoo.
1 baguette (any stale bread will do)
2 C milk
3/4 C grated cheese (Gruyere is the best! but if you have Swiss or cheddar or blue... whatever... try something new)
1/4 C Parmigiano cheese (or just more of whatever you have)
2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
a pinch of dried rosemary
Pre-heat oven to 350. Mix everything but tomatoes and parmesan cheese together in a 2 quart casserole dish. Slice and lay tomatoes on top and sprinkle w parmigiano. Bake for about 45 minutes or until top is golden. Make sure you let this rest for about 15 minutes before you scoop to serve and eat.
You can serve this as a meal in itself or with grilled chicken, lamb, salad (for vegetarians), etc etc.
