Ingredients
  • Butter, for baking dish
  • Farro:
  • 1 pound farro
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • Filling:
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) grated extra-sharp Cheddar
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) grated mozzarella
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 tablespoons herbes de Provence
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Topping:
  • 4 (about 5 ounces) 1/2-inch thick slices multi-grain or whole-grain bread, preferably 1 day old, torn into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
Directions

Put an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter a 9 by 13 by 2-inch glass baking dish. Set aside.

Farro: In a large stockpot, bring the farro, water and salt to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce the heat, cover the pot, and simmer until the farro is tender, about 25 to 30 minutes. Drain in a colander.

Filling: In a large bowl mix together the cheeses, milk, herbes de Provence, salt, and pepper. Add the cooked farro and stir until coated. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

Topping: Arrange the bread pieces on top of the farro mixture and drizzle liberally with olive oil.

Bake for 15 minutes until the topping is golden. Cool for 5 minutes and serve.
