Real Men Eat Quiche

Eggs can be used in so many ways and in so many different dishes. As a matter of fact, eggs are not just for breakfast anymore. Let’s talk about quiche. Quiche is an incredibly versatile dish. You can serve it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It can be made a vegetarian dish or you can add some sort of white meat to it such as seafood or chicken.

The biggest issue I have with quiche is the crust. I hate making crust for quiche. Maybe I just don’t like the idea of having a pie crust under my eggs. whatever it is, I think I have found the solution. You can make a fabulous crust using leftover brown rice. Here is my recipe:

Broccoli Quiche


2 eggs

1/2 C Parmasan Cheese

1 1/2  C cooked brown rice

salt and pepper to taste

Mix thoroughly and press into pie plate. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.


1 C raw broccoli

1/4 C diced onions

1/4 C diced bell pepper

1/2 C preferred meat (lobster, chicken, shrimp)

2 slices bacon, cooked and chopped

1 c swiss cheese (like Jarlsberg)

Egg mixture:

4 eggs

1 Can evaporated milk

4 cloves garlic, crushed (more or less to taste)

1/2 tsp tarragon

1/4 tsp white pepper

1/4 tsp salt or ormus

Once crust is cooked, sprinkle with 1/2 of the grated cheese. Evenly sprinkle the bacon on the cheese then sprinkle remaining filling ingredients. Evenly pour egg mixture then sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. Remove from oven and cool at least 5 minutes before cutting.
