Broccoli and Cheese Custard

2 cups broccoli, chopped and cooked            3 eggs, slightly beaten

¼ cup cheddar cheese, grated                                    1 ½ cups fat-free milk

Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line the bottom of a greased 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish with the broccoli.  Sprinkle evenly with cheese.  In a bowl, mix the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper and pour over the broccoli and cheese mixture.  Set the baking dish in a pan with enough water to come halfway up the sides of the dish.  Bake until custard is set, approximately 50 minutes.
