I wanted to love this, but it was just OK. There was something missing and somewhat bland. I think the crust needs some seasoning, maybe cajun spice? If you put Tapitio on it it does make it better!
I really enjoyed this recipe! The rice crust was nice and crispy on the edges and very flavorful. I served a whole pound of kielbasa on the side sauteed with barbecue sauce because I had more people to feed but all in all this was an unusual and great dish!
Made this for a church potluck and it was the first thing to go! It was really tasty, though I'd up the spices a bit for our own family. We really enjoyed it, and it's getting added to our regular rotation.
A nice supper casserole-pie. Will make this again -- a nice meal watching NFL games on tv. :)
This is great recipe to use up left over rice! You can definitely do with less rice i think - it makes a nice this crust, but would save a couple calories! I upped the tobasco, added red pepper flakes, and used a hot link. I didn't eat it hot, i let it come up to room temp and then eat it for breakfast. Would definitely use sun dried tomatoes next time and skip the red pepper (those can get expensive!)
Excellant dish,I used Italian chicken sausage with sundried tomates,and I used provolone cheese and a little sharp cheddar cheese. Also grilled hearts of romain for the veggie.Served with watermelon chunks and dressed with aged balsomic vinegar reduction.
Looks like a nice dish. This site has a great version of this recipe www.entertainingrecipes.org
This was comfort food to the max. I made it with brown rice and sundried tomato and garlic turkey sausage, and added various spices to the egg and crust as I saw fit. It came out great. Very filling, cheesy and delicious.
I enjoyed this. If they had an option to rate it 3.5 stars I would have. I'll definitely be making it again for myself and my girlfriend. I don't think I'd make it for company as is, although I'm going to try the suggestion from another review to add some sun-dried tomatoes. That sounds like it has the potential to kick this up from good, solid recipe to outstanding.
I loved this recipe and am surprised others gave it only 3 stars. I thought it was tasty, not too difficult to prepare, and pretty enough to serve to company. I made the rice the day before and that cut out some of the prep time. I think it would be great for brunch or dinner and maybe even breakfast too. It was also very filling and healthy for the amount of calories. I served with with CL's strawberry basil salad with a balsamic vinagrette and it was great!
With a BUT...I always use sundried tomato and basil chicken sausage and I chop up and add extra sundried tomatoes. I really think that is what this recipe needs. Whenever I make it, people love the rice crust and love the flavor.
