Cajun Quiche in a Rice Crust

Total Time

This recipe came from Cooking Light magazine, we aren't usually quiche fans but this was awsum! A tip: I like to put leftover cooked rice in the freezer, this way I always have precooked rice when I need it and I don't waste the leftovers. Also I add 1-2 tablespoons of Cajun seasoning to the egg mixture. Crust browns nicely! Hope you enjoy!

I really liked this quiche. The rice crust was really good and added nice texture. I used a total of 4 eggs instead of the all the eggs listed in various forms. I used one egg for the rice crust and then another 3 for the top layer. Worked out great!

LOVED this quiche!! It tasted good and it looked great! Didn't add any celery but added more bell pepper. Used spicy sausages that I grilled on the BBQ beforehand. Thanks for a great recipe! ;)
