Hello again everyone!

Wait until you try this recipe, it's awesome!  Don't be put off by the title, because honestly, once you have a taste of the crustless quiche, you won't want to go back to the normal quiche!

This is another super easy recipe!

-  225 g (8oz) Gruyere cheese, shredded (or any of your own choices of cheese can be used)
-  1/2 teaspoon salt
-  1/4 teaspoon pepper

1.  Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees (gas mark 4)  Butter a 25 cm (10-inch) tart pan
