This did not turn out so well. My husband said the texture was "like egg foo young gone bad." It was almost like a mix between quiche and rice, and those two things just shouldn't go together. The taste was pretty bland - although I did use a mixture of swiss and muenster (had to use it up) instead of the cheddar; this is why I'm giving it three stars instead of two, since I changed an ingredient. It might work better to use less eggs, more garlic - I'm not sure, but it just didn't work for us.
