Yield
4 servings (serving size: 1 wedge)

If you don't have cooked rice on hand, use boil-in-a-bag rice (such as Success Rice) and follow the microwave directions. Cool the rice slightly before adding egg. Total time: 45 minutes.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

To prepare crust, combine rice, garlic powder, onion powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 egg. Spread mixture into the bottom and up sides of a 9-inch pie plate coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle bottom of crust evenly with 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese.

Step 3

To prepare filling, heat a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add onion and the next 4 ingredients (through sausage); sauté 5 minutes. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared rice crust. Combine the egg substitute, fat-free yogurt, salt, hot pepper sauce, and egg whites; stir with a whisk until well blended. Pour egg substitute mixture over sausage mixture. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Bake at 375° for 30 minutes or until the center is set. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.

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.

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 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!

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.

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!)

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. :)
