Daphne - Ham & Wild Rice Quiche - luvnit - 01-01-2011

Here is the other recipe I was telling you about. One thing I always do is prebake my crust. Which is different in this recipe, but I do it anyway.

Ham and Wild Rice Quiche

3/4 cup water
1/4 cup uncooked wild rice
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
1 cup cubed cooked ham
1/3 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion tops
1 (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
Directions
1.In a small pot, bring the water and wild rice to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes.
2.Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Bake the pie crust 10 minutes, or until golden brown. Reduce heat to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
3.In a bowl, mix the cooked rice, ham, red bell pepper, green onion tops, and mushrooms. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, sour cream, mustard, salt, and pepper.
4.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.
5.Bake 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.


*** More wild rice tips: Cook up a large batch, let it cool on a cookie sheet, chill it, then freeze it in a Gallon baggie. It's easy to take some and add it to soup, or other white rice for a pilaf. You can also add it bread and make Wild Rice Bread.

POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!!

I sent you an email with the Grandma Behrendt's Seasoning recipe and suggestions attached to it. Hope you got that too dear.
