Roasted Red Pepper and Cheese Crustless Quiche

Kids will love this quiche, plus they can help Mom or Dad prepare it. They can chop peppers and shred cheese, and older children can use an electric beater (with adult supervision, of course) to beat eggs.


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 9 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar , Asiago or Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup ricotta
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1 cup diced roasted red peppers , (from a jar is fine)
  • 4 green onions , chopped

Instructions

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup (75 mL) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp (4 mL) baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp (2 mL) salt
  • 9 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups (375 mL) shredded sharp cheddar, Asiago or Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup (250 mL) ricotta cheese
  • 1 cup (250 mL) grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup (250 mL) diced roasted red peppers (from a jar is fine)
  • 4 green onions, chopped

Instructions

  • Preheat the over to 350°C (190°F). Grease a 10 in (25 cm) pie pan.
  • In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • Crack the eggs into a large mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until very fluffy and almost doubled in volume – 3 or 4 minutes. Add the flour mixture and beat until just blended. Add the cheddar (or whatever), ricotta and Parmesan cheeses and beat very briefly. Finally, stir in the diced red peppers and green onions. Transfer to the prepared pie pan and put into the oven. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until nicely puffed, lightly browned and a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Let sit at room temperature for about 5 minutes before serving.
