"Perfect recipe for using up leftovers! If you have eggs, milk, rice and cheese, you can practically clean out your fridge right into your quiche pan. Sometimes I even add some leftover meat. It can be served fresh hot or cold or freeze it for a quick, easy meal during the week!"

"Axe, This recipe was easy to make and made excellent use of leftover veggies and rice, but suffers a little in it's blandness. I would make it again, but next time with the addition of some fresh herbs. I have, and have tried many similar recipes and while this one is not at all bad, it is not quite in the hemisphere's of my 4 or 5 star ratings ... (once you have been on Zaar a while you will find you get more demanding of recipes). That said, it's ideal for kids and was a lovely recipe for a week day dinner. Definiately very edible, just lacking raves. I will certainly make it again, Please see my rating system, a very respectable 3 stars:) Thanks !"
"Turned out great for breakfast. Didn't have 2 c. rice but probably 1+ c. so added 2 T. flour for the crust. Added mushroom, onion and red pepper for the veggies which I sautéed for a few min. Then added half a can of green chills. Added 1/2 t. cumin to the 3 eggs and 3/4 c. milk. It filled up the pie plate so couldn't have used all four eggs. Topped with Mexican cheese, baked for 33 min. served with a slice of ham."
"This recipe is a very good starting point! I used a sweet red pepper, an aneheim pepper, mushrooms, scallions, and minced garlic. I did alter/add more spices, such as 1/4 tsp of cumin and 1/4 tsp of garlic powder to the egg and milk mixture. Also, I think next time I will try adding a little flour to the crust mixture so it doesn't crumble as much. Other than these 2 alterations, the recipe is a good one! My taste-buds were thrilled."
"This was so good, and I love this recipe because you can absolutely use anything that you want in it. The crust was a great idea too, I really liked it because I'm not a big fan of pastry type crusts. I used roma tomatoes, potatoes, yellow and green onions, fresh baby spinach, fresh basil, and fresh rosemary topped with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. It was sooooo good. Thanks for posting!"
"We enjoyed this a lot for Sunday brunch, I used green onion, parsley, red pepper, tomato and a quarter cup of salsa. And of course the cheese on top, happened to have some cooked brown rice in the freezer left over from a fairly spicy jambalaia which added some zip with the salsa. I will make it again, great for leftover stuff, thanks for posting."
"This was really easy to make. I was too impatient to wait for some leftover rice to appear in my fridge, so I cooked some up for this recipe. :-) I also steamed some broccoli to add to it. I give this extra points because it was frugal as well as tasty. I did add some onion salt and chivesto the egg and milk mixture so it wouldn't suffer from blandness. I will definitely make this again!"
"This recipe is FABULOUS! I was told that quiche was supposed to be sort of like a custard pie, but this comes out as a rice/veg/cheese and egg layer cake. I used jasmine rice, and the teense of soy sauce just gives it incredible flavour. Not to mention that it's so filling. It's so good, that I'm eating the green beans in it. Coming from someone who refuses to eat green beans, that's quite a compliment. I'll just be over here purring in contentment, while I think what all I can put in it next time."
