Food Network has once again posted a weird recipe video to their social media accounts. This time they have ruined the perfectly wonderful quiche. How you might ask? Let’s take a look.
They are calling this recipe Tomato, Olive, and Rosemary Crustless Quiche. Is a quiche really a quiche if it doesn’t have a crust? Isn’t it just a frittata? Also, what do people have against pie crust? It’s buttery, flaky, and delicious. Yes, it’s harder to make, but that’s why they sell it at the store!

But I digress. Let’s get to the recipe. It starts off by cooking chopped onions in a pan with olive oil, lemon zest, and kosher salt. Cook until the onions are translucent.
Next, throw some cherry tomatoes on a cookie sheet with olive oil and roast at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. Add some chopped olives (not a fan) to the pan and bake for another 10 minutes.

If you added these ingredients in raw, it would create way too much liquid for the quiche and it would never set.
Onto the egg mixture! You’re going to need half-and-half, 2 whole eggs and 2 egg yolks, and salt and pepper. Whisk that all together.
Now, for the crust. Or “crust.” They use fresh breadcrumbs but you can definitely use already prepared ones here as well. Add the bread crumbs into the pie pan and top with your cooked onions. Next, add shredded swiss and fontina cheese on top of that.
Layer the tomatoes and olives next and then sprinkle fresh rosemary over that. Finally, pour over the egg mixture.
Put your pie dish on a cookie sheet (you don’t want this spilling in your oven) and bake for 50 minutes at 350 degrees. As with a standard quiche, this works for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
While the bread crumbs and cheese will give you some crunch, it’s by no means as much as a pie crust. The combinations of textures you get from a quiche is part of what makes it so good and we are, unfortunately, not getting that here.
