Hubby and I have vastly different opinions on what we want in a breakfast quiche. He wants the meatiness of bacon, ham, chicken or whatever. I prefer lighter veggies, goat cheese and olives. I was making breakfast last weekend and we sure had a difference of opinion. So I started with my standard rice crust and improvised from there. Then I thought…. Mother’s Day!! This would be great for Mother’s Day brunch too!
For this quiche, I used a 9×9 pan, baked my rice crust first, then divided it down the middle so one side was hubby’s bacon and cheddar and the other had goat cheese, olives and all my faves. When making it for Mom this Mother’s Day, try adding some smoked salmon or shrimp if she likes seafood. Or, eliminate the bacon and make it strictly veggies with the addition of broccoli and/or zucchini. Either way, there are ingredients to make everyone happy.
Two-In-One Baked Quiche with Rice Crust
|Prep time||15 minutes|
|Cook time||1 hour|
|Total time||1 hour, 15 minutes|
- 1 1/2 cup cooked rice
- 1 Large egg (beaten)
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 teaspoon dill
- 1/2 teaspoon Two Snooty Chef's Hungarian Ragout Seasoning
- 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
- 10 Large black olives
- 3 Slices cooked bacon (chopped)
- 1 tomato (chopped)
- 4 Large mushrooms (sliced)
- 1/4 Medium red onion (diced)
- 3oz peppercorn goat cheese
- 1/4 cup shredded colby jack
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 4 Large eggs (beaten)
This recipe can easily be made vegetarian by eliminating the bacon
Finding a way to put your favorite ingredients in a breakfast quiche and having hubby do the same, makes it easy and there are no fights, although I think my side was better. If there are four of you, each take a quarter and make it uniquely your own. This probably won’t work if one of you is a vegetarian and one a carnivore due to “cross contamination,” but it is a great way to both get what you want. You can also easily multiply the recipe by 1.5 and bake it in a lasagna pan. I’ve done that before and it works great. Just add about 5-8 minutes to your baking time.

This breakfast quiche would also make a great brunch item for Mother’s Day. Just serve it with a big bowl of fruit salad, OJ (or Mimosa’s) and Mom would be thrilled.
