Broccoli And Cheddar Crustless Quiche
Making a quiche in the Instant Pot® feels like a magic trick, especially when you don’t want to use your oven. It’s savory with just enough cheese to feel a bit decadent, so it’s perfect for weekend brunch. The flour in the recipe isn’t used to create a crust; rather, it gives the quiche some structure and makes it easy to slice.
