Beef and Cheddar Quiche Recipe

This recipe has been a family favorite for years. It's easy to prepare and perfect for a busy schedule. I've also made this recipe with salmon - substituting two cans for the ground beef and adding 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. It's great!
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 45 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook the beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Meanwhile, line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes. Remove foil; bake for 5 minutes more. Set aside.
  • 2. Drain beef; place in a large bowl. Add the eggs, mayonnaise, milk, onion, cornstarch, salt, pepper and 1 cup cheese. Pour into crust. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
  • 3. If necessary, cover the edges of crust with foil to prevent overbrowning. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.

"This quiche was a hit at a recent gathering of friends. I used white cheddar (due to a severe allergy to Annatto, the food dye in yellow cheeses) and I added 1/2 cup of chopped tomato. The recipe is a keeper and I will definitely be making this again!"

"I am a quiche fan; I love making it and DEFINITELY LOVE eating it! I have a version I make, but this was VERY good. I may even like this better than my own. My husband gave it a two thumbs up and we almost ate the entire pie in one sitting. There is only two small servings left. Very good. Thank you for the recipe! Next time I may have to make two pies so we can have some left over."
