Crustless Tomato & Herb Quiche


Fast and delicious. The water bath gives this cheesy dish a smooth, velvety texture.

Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 30 minutes
Serves: 6-8

5 eggs
1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella
1/2 cup chopped parsley
2 TB finely minced fresh herbs, such as sage, basil, oregano, and dill
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper, or to taste
Salt to taste
1 large tomato, chopped into pieces about 1/2 inch across

Preheat the oven to 350F. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl, then whisk in the ricotta and mozarella cheeses, the parsley, herbs, pepper, and salt. Scrape the mixture into a pie plate, and arrange the tomato pieces across the top (they will sink in). Place the pie plate into a large baking dish. Carefully fill the baking dish with warm water to about 2/3 of the way up the side of the pie plate, and slide into the oven. Bake for 30 minutes or until the eggs are set.

Can be served warm or cold.
