Non-traditional "Quiche"

Another egg and cheese recipe for you, Jill! :) This is actually two recipes in one, so choose to use either all the ingredients outside of parenthesis, or all the ingredients inside the parenthesis. Confused yet? :)

1 box chicken-flavored Rice-a-Roni, prepared according to directions
To this add a handful of cheddar (mozzarella) cheese, and press into a 9" pie plate.

On top of the "crust," layer the following:
10 oz. cooked broccoli (spinach, thawed and drained)
2 c. cooked chicken (1 lb. of bacon, fried, drained, and crumbled)
Handful of cheddar (mozzarella)

Beat together:
3 oz. milk
3 eggs

Pour over ingredients in crust and top with seasoned breadcrumbs. Bake for 20-25 minutes at 375.

I usually make the broccoli/chicken/cheddar version, and have included the original variations, but I think I would probably swap swiss for the mozzarella if making the spinach/bacon version. Just a personal preference!


  1. This sounds really good. I would make it tonight if I had all the ingredients. I'll have to pick them up next time I'm at the store.

  2. This was really good. I used some chopped ham that I had in the freezer in lieu of the chicken. It was tasty with the cheese and broccoli even though it was a tad salty. I look forward to trying it with the chicken and other variations.

  3. I really like how versatile this recipe is -- glad you guys liked this, too! I have used ham before, too, as well as breakfast sausage.
