2 cups. rice, cooked
5 egg whites
1 T. coconut oil
3/4 c. organic half and half
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 large onion, diced
8 oz. organic pork sausage (I used wild Boar a friend had processed for us)
1 c. broccoli, steamed
8 oz. raw cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 t. kosher salt
1/2 t. black pepper
For The Crust:
Take the cooked rice and stir in 1 egg white. Press into a greased pie plate. Bake in an oven at 350 for 10 minutes. Set aside.
For The Filling:
Whisk the egg whites with cream, garlic, salt & pepper in a large bowl. Set aside. Steam the broccoli, chop and add to the egg white mixture. Cook the onions and pork sausage in a medium skillet until the meat is browned and onions soft. Make a layer of the meat and onions on the bottom of the rice crust. Add a layer of cheese, keep about 1/2 c. for the topping. Pour the egg mixture over the meat. Top with remaining cheese.
Bake in oven at 350 for 45-55 minutes until bubbly. Let it set for 5 minutes before cutting.
*Tip: This could all be assembled the night before and baked in the morning!
