Award Winning Quiche!

I am so excited to learn that I have won the Iron Chef Challenge! May's challenge ingredient was ham, and I entered one of my favorite recipes, Wild Rice Quiche.

Judge and President of Dakin Farms Sam Cutting IV had this to say about my winning recipe: "While each recipe looked great and there are several favorites, I chose Wild Rice Quiche w/ham as my favorite submission. There are several reasons why this is my top pick. First off, I love all of these ingredients and how these flavors work together. Whole grain wild rice is such a special food with its crunchy, firm texture and nutty flavor. It goes so well with our smoky sweet Dakin Farm ham, mushrooms, onions, peppers, and Swiss cheese in a quiche. Also, I feel this a relatively healthy choice with the combination of nutritious whole grain, vegetables and lean protein. It is a filling and hearty recipe which is also extremely delicious!"

I can't wait to receive my prize, a $50 dinner ham from Dakin Farms. You can bet I'll be posting a lot more ham recipes in the future! Thanks "a latte" Ott, A for the terrific contest!

Head on over to Let's Do Brunch for some other great brunch ideas.


  1. Congrats on winning! I hope you come back by in June when the themed ingredient is Milk in honor of National Dairy Month!

  2. Congratulations on winning. That is fantastic. The recipe looks good. I don't eat ham but I could make this with a substitute, I think. It would make a nice change for us.

    I can also enter into the milk competition.
