Easy Cheddar Rice Casserole

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by littleturtle

Savory side dish flavored with a blend of garlic, cheese, and parsley. You can make this a main dish by adding some diced chicken, turkey, or ham.

Top Review by Tornado Ali

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.
