5) Meanwhile, use a saucepan to gently heat the milk. Combine with lightly beaten eggs, by whisking properly. Strain into the milk saucepan.
6) Place the saucepan on gentle heat until just thick enough to coat the back of a spoon - do not allow the mixture to boil.
7) Remove from heat and add half the cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
8) Drain the cooked chicory and with a ham wrap the head.
9) Use a buttered fireproof dish to place the chicory.
10) Pour the cheese custard over the chicory; sprinkle with remaining cheese and grill until brown.
