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


  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 1/3 cup chopped Jones Dairy Farm Canadian Bacon or fully cooked ham
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 cup cooked wild rice
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Snipped parsley, optional


  • 1. Bake crust at 425° for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside. Reduce heat to 325°.
  • 2. In a skillet, saute Canadian bacon or ham and onion in butter until onion is tender. Spoon into the crust. Sprinkle with cheese and wild rice.
  • 3. In a small bowl, beat eggs, cream and salt. Pour over all. Bake at 325° for 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish with parsley if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
