Baked Egg Custard with Cheese
  • Butter at room temperature for dishes (I used Pam)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half (I used evaporated milk)
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 3 cups reserved vegetables, cut into 1/2-in chunks*
  • 4 oz soft goat cheese, crumbled (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush a 9-inch deep-dish pie plate (or four 10-oz ramekins or custard cups) with butter; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1/2 tsp coarse salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Stir in vegetables, half the goat cheese and scallions. Place pie plate (ramekins or custard cups) on a rimmed baking sheet; pour egg mixture into pie plate (or ladle into ramekins or cups). Sprinkle with remaining goat cheese. Bake until eggs are set and tops are golden brown. 35-40 minutes.
