Crustless Vegetable and Cheese Quiche | Main Course | Savoury Bake

Quiche is a french open savoury tart , usually a pastry crust filled a custard of eggs, milk , cheese and vegetables/meat.

Though traditionally served in a crust, here is a simple recipe without the usual pie crust (and hence , way less work) yet similar mouth watering results.

I have used commercially available pizza cheese and the vegetables which were easily available in my pantry. You can experiment with both and give it your own personalised touch.
