This light and fluffy quiche skips the crust for a fuss-free and flavorful meal. Sun-dried tomatoes, melty mozzarella, and a touch of pesto create a taste explosion in every bite. Plus, cleanup is a breeze – everything gets mixed and baked in one pan! Enjoy it for a quick breakfast, a leisurely brunch, or even a light lunch or dinner with a side salad.

Ingredients:

  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon onion powder
  • 4 ounces small fresh mozzarella cheese balls (about 1 cup)
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon refrigerated basil pesto
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic glaze

Instructions:

  1. Whisk & Assemble: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and onion powder until smooth (about 3 minutes). Gently fold in the mozzarella balls and cherry tomatoes. Dollop the pesto evenly over the top.
  2. Bake & Enjoy: Pop the pan in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the center is set. Let the quiche cool slightly for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Drizzle with balsamic glaze for an extra touch of sweetness and acidity.
