This bake uses ingredients that are similar to a pasta bake. The only difference is that bread is used, instead of pasta. It's a great way of using up old bread.
If unavailable, substitute in Parmigiano Reggiano (Parmesan) or any other strong, hard cheese.
I wasn't sure what to expect with this recipe. It is really good, easy, and flavorful. I did use more ground beef than it called for. I used a whole pound because that is what I had defrosted. I think next time I will again use the whole pound. Thanks for a really good recipe. - 26 May 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was very tasty and incredibly easy! I could incorporate all 4 food groups and my kids had no idea - they just knew they wanted more! - 18 Jul 2005 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This recipe is a really great idea and a bit of a retake on something my mom used to make which was savoury bread and butter pudding, but this is better because everything is nice and moist. I cheated a lot and used a packet of pre-cooked spaghetti mince which I make in huge quantities and keep in the freezer for quick dinners, but which has all the ingredients required for the mince in this recipe anyway. I chopped some extra fresh tomatoes and threw those in to up the veggie content. I used leftover hotdog rolls, cubed. I also used 4 eggs, milk and no stock. I then microwaved it, covered, for about 6 mins. Added grated cheese and then 2 mins more. Fab idea! - 13 Feb 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
