Margherita Sheet Pan Quiche

This pizza Margherita-style egg dish uses a sheet pan for faster cooking and a contemporary take on the traditional quiche. Using store-bought crusts makes this recipe super fast, but you can swap out homemade or use gluten-free crusts instead.

NUTRIENT-PACKED TOMATOES: Cherry tomatoes are packed with nutrients including vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that supports the immune system; vitamin K is essential for normal blood clotting and bone support; and potassium is integral for maintaining healthy blood pressure and kidney health. It’s also a great source of the antioxidant lycopene, which protects the body’s cells from free radical damage.

Ingredients

  • 2 store-bought, deep-dish whole-grain pie crusts, thawed, room temperature

  • 6 large eggs 

  • 1/3 cup half-and-half cream 

  • ½ tsp sea salt 

  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper (TRY: Simply Organic Ground Black Pepper)
  • ½ cup chopped red onion 

  • 3/4 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved 

  • 1/2 cup loosely packed fresh basil, thinly sliced 

  • 1 cup sliced fresh mozzarella balls 

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Meanwhile, remove crusts from wrapper and stack one on top of the other on a sheet of parchment. Cover with another parchment sheet and roll crusts out to about 12 x 17 inches.

2. Transfer crust to a 9 x 13-inch sheet pan with a 1-inch rim and press crust firmly into corners and sides. (Note: Make sure you are using a pan with raised edges, not a flat cookie sheet.) The crust should extend above the sides of the pan by about ¼ inch; fold extra crust slightly over sides of pan. Bake crust for 7 minutes, until just beginning to turn golden. Remove from oven, poke any bubbles with a fork and let cool for 10 minutes.

3. While crust cools, whisk together eggs, cream, salt and pepper. Stir in onion, tomatoes and basil.

4. Pour egg mixture into cooled crust. Arrange cheese over egg mixture, pressing gently to submerge them. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until eggs are just puffy and golden. Let cool for 2 to 3 minutes before serving.
