This dish is great not only because of the flavors, but when baking, it forms its own crispy crust!

If you are looking for a healthier alternative, use fat-free evaporated milk, low-moisture Cheddar cheese, and 6 egg whites. It will be a little lighter, visually, but just as delicious.

  • 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup ricotta cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 4 oz cooked lobster meat, chopped
  • 1 medium potato, cooked and diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil


  • 1 Preheat oven to 325-degrees F. Grease a 9-inch cake or pie tin with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
  • 2 In a large bowl, add milk, ricotta, and eggs, whisking until smooth. Stir in 1/4 cup cheese, lobster meat, potato, salt and black pepper. Pour into prepared pan.
  • 3 Place pan into a roasting pan with enough water to come half-way up the side of the prepared pan. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until firm but it will still slightly jiggle in the middle.
