Broccoli Raab in Cheese Custard


2 cups steamed broccoli raab, chopped
3/4 cups grated cheddar cheese
3 eggs
1-1/2 cups milk or light cream
3/4 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Preheat the oven to 350. Butter a 1-1/2 quart baking dish and put the chopped broccoli raab into it, and sprinkle with the cheese. Beat the eggs lightly in a separate bowl and stir in the milk, salt and pepper. Stir into the broccoli-cheese mixture. Put the baking dish in a shallow pan with hot water halfway up its sides. Bake for 45 - 60 minutes, or until the custard is set.
