This is such a light and fluffy quiche. I serve it as a main dish with a side dish of some green veggies. We like kale with it the best.

Try this crustless ricotta quiche if you need an easy recipe for your next brunch or holiday breakfast. Mix the ingredients, pour the eggs into a baking dish, and bake. Easy peasy! The eggs are nice and fluffy, and the ricotta adds a touch of creaminess to them. Tomato and green onions add a pop of fresh flavor. We opted to use diced ham and loved the smoky flavor it added. But the meat can be omitted, and the quiche is a delicious brunch option for vegetarians.
