  1. Spread 2 tbsp margarine/butter onto the bread and cut each slice diagonally into four triangles. Arrange half of the bread evenly over the base of an ovenproof dish. Sprinkle with half the cheese, half the onion and half the mixed herbs. Repeat the process and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Beat together the milk and egg and season with salt and pepper. Pour the mixture over the bread layers and bake in the oven for 20 minutes, or until risen and golden.
  3. Meanwhile, melt 1 tbsp margarine/butter in a small frying pan and gently fry the mushrooms and garlic for 3-4 minutes, or until tender. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve the Cheddar bread bake with the garlic mushrooms.
