If you’re read any of the other recipes on this blog you’ll know I’m a big fan of lazy easy cooking, and that I usually get Mushroom involved in some way. As baking is often a ‘go to’ activity for a rainy day, we always usually have the staples in the cupboard and fridge. One item we never get tired of is eggs. As a healthy fast food option, they’re unbeatable (sorry).

So, today I’m sharing my easiest ever recipe – no crust pizza quiche. Mushroom and I love pizza but Mr B is less keen. I’m not sure why, but we get round it by making pizza-esque dishes such as this one every now and then. I like it because although without the dough, it feels lighter than pizza, it’s actually more filling because it packs a real protein punch.

Here’s the recipe (I use this term very loosely!):

About 4 eggs

A handful of halved cherry tomatoes

A squidge of tomato puree

A handful of basil

A splash of milk

Some sliced red peppers

A bit of Salami

Mozzarella cheese, torn. As much as you like



Beat the eggs (Mushroom loves doing this)

Add all the other ingredients, placing the tomatoes juicy side up and adding the mozzarella last.

Stick it in the oven at 180 degrees/gas mark 4 and wait 30 minutes/until centre is cooked through and cheese is bubbling….

Done! Of course you can change the toppings (and even make this with egg whites only) to suit dietary requirements – we add chicken and spinach sometimes, and/or whatever veg we have leftover from previous meals!
