Caprese Quiche (crustless)

h2Chef’s Notes:/h2
pFor brunch, lunch or a light dinner, this simple, do-ahead dish can’t be beat. I created this recipe when the basil in my garden had to be used. I had the tomatoes and cheese on hand, but not enough to make a salad. So I thought, iWhy not/i? Turned out so good I can’t wait to make it again. It tastes like a cross between Caprese salad and pizza./p
pQuiche is notorious for having a soggy crust. Not using a crust eliminates the problem!/p
