  • 10. In the medium-sized bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together, then pour into the silverbeet mixture, stirring gently to combine.

  • 11. Spoon the mixture into the prepared pans or dishes and smooth the tops with the spatula.

  • 12. Bake for 30 minutes or until the slices are set and golden brown.

  • 13. Leave to cool for 10 minutes before turning out onto the wooden board. Allow to cool, then slice and serve.
