Quiche in a rice crush
This was one of my Grandma's recipes. It originally called for "deli thin diced chicken, cut into thin strips." I'm not sure exactly what that would be, and I didn't have any chicken anyways, so I used ham lunch meat.
1 1/2 to 2 cups cooked rice
1 egg white
1 Tbl chopped green onions
Beat together and spread into a greased 10" pie plate. Bake at 350 for 5 minutes.
2 ounces of deli meat of your choice
1 egg white
1 can evap milk
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 grated cheddar
2 green onions, chopped
Sprinkle meat onto rice crust.
Beat eggs, egg white, evap milk, and salt. Stir in 1/2 cup cheese and green onions. Pour into crust. Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese. Bake for 35 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
Let stand at least 10 minutes before serving.
The recipe says you can top each wedge with a tomato slice, but I think that is a silly idea. :)
We ate this with some oatmeal muffins and mandarin oranges. All three kids cleaned their plates, which is quite remarkable considering it had green things in it. Maybe it was because Nathanael ran them around outside for hours and they were famished! Either way, I'll take it.
