Beef and Cheddar Quiche

Cooking time:  60 minutes for menu      Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

       If you prefer, make or buy a pastry crust. I like both the flavor and health benefits of the brown rice - even the quick-cooking variety.  You could use any rice you like - and cook it ahead of time. The other half of both peppers will be used later in the week.

Beef and Cheddar Quiche

Total time: 60 minutes
    Brown rice makes a healthy, flavorful crust for quiches and savory pies.  Cook it ahead of time for quicker prep time. Use less cheese if you like  - I was thinking 'cheeseburger' when I made this.
