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.

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!)

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.
