This is a nice change from ordinary quiche. Full of ham, wild rice, mushrooms, red bell peppers, and flavored with a touch of Dijon mustard, this quiche is fabulous for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. And the meat & veggie mixture is terrific simply scrambled with eggs for a quickie meal!

  • Sprinkle the bottom of the pie crust with 1 cup Swiss cheese. Spread the rice, ham, and vegetable mixture over the cheese, and cover with the egg mixture. Top with remaining Swiss cheese.

  • Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

I liked the sour cream as an alternative filler but I did not care for the rice in the quiche. My husband ate it but agreed. Read More

I haven't met too many quiches I didn't like but I thought this was a little better than most, I think, due to the sour cream. My husband had to ask if there were eggs in it. I could not find wild rice so ended up using another whole grain, dark colored rice called Forbidden Rice. I'm really not sure the rice added anything to the dish so you could easily substitute a chopped vegetable. Read More

I have never made quiche before and was very pleased with the results. The only ingredient I did not include were the mushrooms. It had a great consistency kept its shape and didn't fall apart. It was very tasty! Thank you! Read More

I love this quiche and have found that even people who SAY they don't like quiche will gobble this up! I usually just mix the cheese right in with the other ingredients and it turns out beautifully every time. I've used ham and chicken both with great results. Read More

This recipe was wonderful! Now I had to make a few substitutions (Uncle Bens long grain and wild rice green pepper cheddar cheese) but everything turned out fantastic. I did broil the top for a couple minutes but that's just how we like it. Please don't hesitate to try this as you will not be dissappointed. Thanks Sue for submitting! Read More

This quiche was a big hit for my family's leftover Christmas ham. I would prefer not to have the rice in there just because there is already a lot of starch with the dough and it's filling as is. I suggest skip the rice and steam some vegetables to have on the side instead. Read More
