Tortino Ai Funghi


4 slices white bread
4 eggs
7 cups milk
grated Parmigiano
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 pinch of oregano
5 tbs. olive oil
1 lb. mushrooms, sliced
2/3 lb. tomatoes, peeled and chopped

How to make the Mushroom Crust:

Remove and discard the crust of the white bread and moisten the rest with milk. Saute the garlic with oil; stir in the mushrooms for few minutes and then add the tomatoes. Cook for 10 min. Let cool for a while.

Whip the eggs; mix in the cheese and the moist bread; combine with 2/3 of the sauteed mushroom and tomatoes, then place this mixture in a buttered baking dish: top with a layer of remaining mushrooms. Sprinkle with oregano, salt and pepper. Bake for about 10-15 min. in oven at 400°F.
