"This was so easy to make and tastes great. I actually didn't have any rice so I just substituted cooked quinoa and it worked out just fine. Also, the next time I make it I will reduce or omit the salt altogether. I think that the cheddar the worchestershire sauce gives the dish plenty of salty flavor."

"I've been making 1/2 a recipe of this for years. I cook 1/2 cup of raw rice first , add 1 box of chopped spinach, thawed and lightly cooked, and etc. and bake in a 8x8 pan. It can be microwaved until done, but tastes better IMO in the oven. In the summer I will microwave it for 10 min on 50% or so, until the eggs are set.

The more minced onion and cheese added the better!"
