This delicious quiche is full of flavor. Filled with cooked wild rice, ground venison sausage and smoked Gouda cheese. Substitute ground venison and a smoked cheddar cheese for the smoked Gouda. Adding liquid smoke really brings out the natural flavor of the venison. The wonderful thing about making a quiche is you can literally use any ingredients you have on hand and the end result will be delicious.
