Our recipe calls for frozen pie crust in the name of saving time, but if you’ve got the time and skills, definitely make it from scratch. Once the pie crust is ready to go, add the mixture of cooked Carolina® Broccoli and Cheese Rice Mix, gently whisked eggs, whipping cream, ham, and cheese, then bake for 30 minutes. Those 30 minutes may seem long once the delicious scents of broccoli and cheese start to fill your kitchen.
Looking to boost the broccoli flavor? Or to integrate even more veggies into this dish? Go for it! Simply add broccoli florets, or leeks and green onion to the mix for a veggie-packed meal. Want to pump up the cheese? Or better yet, give it some kick? Also easily doable. Just add extra shredded cheddar to the mix, or sprinkle with shredded Pepper Jack when serving.
Alternatively, cook with another rice variety like white rice or brown rice. Make sure you use the right white rice water ratio for perfectly cooked grains.
