My favorite room in our house is the kitchen, where I love to carry on the country cooking traditions passed down to me through my grandmother and mother. I also enjoy sewing and crafting with my daughters.


  • 2-1/2 cups warm cooked rice
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped fully cooked ham
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • Several drops of hot pepper sauce
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
  • Chopped fresh parsley


  1. With the back of a spoon, press the rice into a greased 9-in. pie plate to form a crust. Drizzle with butter. Bake at 350° for 3 minutes; remove from the oven. Combine ham, cheeses and hot pepper sauce; sprinkle over rice. Beat eggs, milk, paprika, garlic powder and onion powder; pour over ham over mixture. Sprinkle with parsley. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting.
