Is it a Frittata or a Quiche?
It's both! This recipe could either be called a frittata or a crustless quiche. Both are made with eggs, the biggest difference is that frittatas ingredients are typically cooked on the stovetop and then moved to the oven for baking.
Quiches, on the other hand, are usually only baked. Ingredients are prepared beforehand, mixed together in a bowl and then poured into a baking dish, then sent into the oven.
Of course, there are always variances in both methods, but these are typical examples.
Frittata Is Easy
Don't be intimidated by the list of ingredients. It is all easily prepared and all gets cooked in the same pan. The hardest part is chopping the onion (which isn't too hard)!
A Healthy Crustless Quiche
Frittatas and quiches use a lot of eggs and fresh ingredients which make them healthy. Eggs are nutrient-packed wonders. This version of a crustless quiche/frittata is made even healthier as it is low carb, has no sugar added, and is keto-friendly.
Crustless Quiche - Keto
Whether you call it crustless quiche or frittata, this recipe is perfect if you're following a keto diet.

It tastes great
I'm a huge fan of frittatas because they are so delicious. I love the flavors of this one. Caprese salad is one of my favorite things to make during the summer when my roma tomatoes are ripening all at once.
This year we have an abundance of cherry tomatoes and eggs (from our 17 chickens). It was actually my husband's idea for me to make a caprese salad frittata! Good idea, honey!
It's a one-pan dish
Other than whisking your eggs and milk in a bowl, this is a one-pan that goes from stovetop to oven quickly! It also gives me an excuse to use my cast iron skillet - which is my favorite pan!
