  • 1 cup milk (whole milk, skim milk, or a milk alternative)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme or your favorite herbs (optional)

    • Place the pie dish in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 30-35 minutes or until the quiche is set and the top is golden brown.
  8. Cool and Serve:
    • Allow the crustless quiche to cool for a few minutes before slicing. Serve warm.
