"Very mushy, watery, didnt turn out how expected!"

"WAY too much bread; it was very mushy when done. I'd halve the bread and egg mixture, leaving the same amount of tomatoes without placing a layer of bread on top."

"This sounded good but turned out very watery and mushy. If I made again, would use less water and less tomatoes."
