- 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
- 3/4 pound ground beef
- 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup dill pickle relish
- 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
- 5 large eggs
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1/2 cup 2% milk
- 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
- 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
- Optional garnishes: mayonnaise, additional pickle relish, crumbled cooked bacon, and chopped onion and tomato
- Unroll pastry into a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate; flute edges and set aside. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, onion, relish and bacon. Transfer to prepared pastry.
- In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, mustard, pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Pour over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheeses.
- Bake at 375° for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish with optional ingredients if desired. Yield: 8 servings.
Reviews for Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche
"I can see why this was a contest winner! This was really great and now a keeper in my recipe file. Only change I made was to add some Montreal Steak Seasoning to my ground round while I was browning it. Very moist and tasty. I did put a tray under the pie pan to catch spillage.......but there wasn't any. Yes, the foil on crust last 15 minutes really kept the crust from over browning."
"Very good.The only thing it needed to serve was ketchup!! I used a 9" pie plate and it was perfect. I used about 8 ounces of half and half that I had on hand and the rest skim milk, didn't seem to alter the result. I put a tray on the shelf below the pie plate in the oven and I think that caused the cheese to brown too much. There wasn't any spillage anyway, but next time i think I will put the pie plate on the tray just in case and see if that make a diffference or I could add some of the cheese into the quiche and top with the rest to incorporate it more."
"our family loves it! I spread some mustard over the crust before filling, and its divine!"
"It does taste like a cheeseburger! One of my family's favorite quiche recipes. Made 2 like others suggested adding a little extra on the ingredients. I also use the frozen deep dish pie crusts. I freeze one quiche, cut it in 1/4's first, if you want individual servings frozen, then put aluminum pan with quiche in ziploc freezer bag."
"This was great! I used whole milk, and used a little more of all ingredients to make two deep dish pies. I'll be making it again."
"Made with ground beef, replaced the diced tomato & onion w/ Ro-Tel (as suggested in previous comment) and omitted the pickle relish. We liked it a lot...added it to our regular rotation!"
"Too much ingredients for one pie and tastes more like quiche. I'm going to remake the recipe after I tweek the ingredient list and make it healthier. The basic idea is good, but I found this particular recipe as written, not good."
"Delicious! Like others, I used a frozen deep-dish pie crust and realized I really could have made two with the amounts stated in the recipe. I used half and half instead of heavy cream. Next time I will try carmelizing the onions. Mmmm!"
"Made 2 of these because we had company over and it was a huge hit! I served a tossed salad to go with it.. My family and my in-laws loved it so much they said I could make it again ."
"This tastes exactly the way I like my cheeseburger...with lots of dill pickles. Top with shredded lettuce, fresh tomato, and serve with a mixture of 1/2 ketchup & 1/2 mayo for dipping forkfuls. Yum!"
