Wild Rice Quiche Recipe

Wild Rice Quiche Recipe

Wild rice is very abundant in our state, so that's why I think this dish is appropriate for a regional recipe contest. This is an excellent brunch item that I usually serve with fresh muffins and fruit. When you add a steaming cup of Norwegian egg coffee, you have a super Minnesota meal.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:6-8 servings
