  3. thanks, but I tried to do it numerous of times and it always says "problem loading the page". Can it be so because of any restrictions on my country? I'm from Lithuania.

  4. Leva, I wonder if that might be the problem. Somebody else told me they couldn't get the link to work but others can see it without a problem. I'll add the directions in when I get a chance. In the mean time, here's the directions for you:
    Makes: 6 servings
    Ingredients
    2 cups cooked brown rice
    1/4 cup cheddar cheese, finely grated
    5 eggs
    1 cup milk
    2 cups broccoli, cut into bite sized pieces and blanched
    1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, grated
    4 green onions, sliced
    1 pinch nutmeg (optional)
    Salt and pepper, to taste
    Instructions
    Mix the rice, finely grated cheese and one egg in a bowl. Press the rice mixture into a pie plate, about 1/4 inch thick.

    Bake in a preheated 450 degree F oven until the edges and bottom just start turning golden brown, about 5 to 7 minutes.

    Mix the remaining eggs, milk, broccoli, sharp cheddar cheese and green onions in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the pie crust.

    Bake in a preheated 375 degree F oven until golden brown and set in the center, about 30 to 35 minutes.

  6. Do you think it's okay to use a cake pan to cook it in? that's the only type of baking dish I have!

  7. I think a cake pan would work fine. The slices might not come out as neatly since you won't have the sloping sides that a pie plate have. I'm thinking that even a 8 or 9 inch square glass pan would work fine as well.

  8. I have a question. Do I cook the rice before mixing it with the cheese and egg and bake for the 5 - 7 minutes? TIA

  9. Yes, 2 cups cooked brown rice and then mix it with the 1 cup cheese and 1 egg. Press into the pie plate until it's about 1/4 inch thick and bake in a 450 degree oven for 5-7 minutes before adding the filling.

  12. Is this a gluten-free recipe? Seems like you could get gluten free brown rice and make it work.

  13. Hi Ellie,
    I don't know much about gluten-free but from my understanding brown rice is gluten-free. However I read that brown rice does contain haemagglutinin lectin which can cause problems for some individuals. Because of this white rice, which has had the bran removed, may actually be a better form of rice. So if you're looking for a gluten-free recipe, I think you'll be safe with this one. But, check all the ingredients to make sure. :)
    Happy cooking!
