- 1/2 cup dill pickle relish
- 1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon
- 5 eggs
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream

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!"
"We really enjoyed this. We've made it twice recently and kinds of "cheated" the last time by adding a can of drained RoTell tomatoes in stead of the fresh tomatoes and onions. Very nice"
"I used ground turkey, regular tomatoes and fat free half and half. It turned out very good."
"This one's a keeper! I used frozen pie crusts and got two pies. They took 50 minutes to bake to perfection. Also added more cheese to cover top of two pies. Next time I would take the advice to use a well-drained can of Rotel tomatoes with chilies and perhaps cut down on the relish...or not."
"Made this for my husband and myself tonight and have already recommended it to my friends on facebook. I did sub ground turkey and real bacon bits."
"This was very easy to make and a nice change from the ordinary. I used mushrooms instead of tomatoes and low fat sharp cheddar cheese and omitted the cream. Will definitely make again."
"Way too many ingredients"
"This is a great recipe. Will definately make it again. However, just don't understand why some cooks think that low fat this and reduced fat that is better for them. Would you rather have natural or taken apart and put back together foods?"
"I want to try this recipe for a lunch and I would like to know if this is made before hand, can it be frozen and then reheated?"
"Good as is BUT-too many calories and fat for me sooo...1/2 lb very lean beef, 4 strips bacon (or skip it entirely), 1 can evaporated skim milk + 1/2 c. 2, 1 c. reduced fat sharp cheddar. Cuts a bit of fat/calories w/out sacrificing taste."
"I have made this many times. My son requests this for his birthday dinner."
"I'm making this for sure. I see a lot of quiche recipes, but this is unique. I'm having chopped avocado and 1,000,island ready on the side"
"We loved this recipe! I was making the same meal to share with another household, so I sort of doubled the recipe. And sort of not!I used 2 pie shells (homemade), one regular and one gluten free. I did not double the hamburger, but used just under half a pound in each quiche. Even less would have worked out fine. I used real bacon bits instead of bacon. I used fat-free half and half, quite a bit less of it. I think I used 1 cup of the half and half, plus 1/2 cup of 2% milk, for the 2 quiches. It was plenty. I also used less cheese, and less dill relish (only because I ran out of dill relish).It came out fantastic and I will definitely make this often. A great recipe!"
"Yummy! Will be making this often I'm sure."
"This made a very nice dinner. My husband and picky 2 1/2 year old son loved it.I made a homemade crust instead of the sheet. Turned out great."

"Very good, but it needs something...(not sure what-maybe more relish?) I will make this again and probably "tinker" with it."
"I love this recipe and have made it several times. It is a very heavy though. I use half and half, less bacon and less cheese. These changes have made it a lot better."
"My family loved this recipe! I have never made a quiche before and had my doubts about it, but it has become a family favorite the kids ask for it all the time. Def. try this!!"
"This an unbelievable treat. It has become something I make time and time again. I have served it to guests as well. A great ting to make for game day too!"
"Very tasty. I did vary it by using a can of well drained Rotel tomatoes because I was out of fresh tomatoes. It gave it an extra zing. The second time I made this, I used sausage and a bit of ham for a breakfast quiche. It was so good with the canned tomatoes & hot peppers, that I used that again instead of fresh. Thank you for this very versitile recipe."
"I felt that this recipe was a little too bland. I'll likely try to make it again, but modify it greatly to get more flavor. Great concept -- I just like a more bold flavor."
"This was great and easy to make. My picky 17 year old son loves it and askes for it often."
"We have made this several times with a few minor variations to it. For example, I feel it tastes better with bacon bits than real bacon. ALSO--chefs, please note--when we used exact amounts of milk/cream, it overflowed was TOO much. So you may need to make your own variations accordingly. One way to avoid overflow is a half pound of ground beef instead of 3/4. Another option is to make the entire mixture and pour the overflow into a container and freeze it to save to make a second pie. This is awesome. People with lowt hyroid--this is clearly a thyroid revving recipe. It makes me feel somuch beter I am hooked on this my staff has to cook it for me at least once a month. Thats how good it is. This shoulod have gotten first place, not second. because there is so many ways you can vary it a bit. I love quiches. Totally love them. Need to get me more recipes like this one. Awesome (to the creator). Way to go girl, Thank you for this."
"This is pretty good stuff. I wasn't sure about the amount of dill relish but for us it was just right. I used the 9" deep dish premade frozen pie crusts. I am glad they come in packs of two because I wound up needing to use them both. It made two of these pies. But, I am not complaining and neither do my co-workers! They will gladly devour the benefits of the extra pie. Thanks for the post. I will be keeping this recipe."
"I am allergic to all dairy products, not an intolerance but a true allergy. I can modify many recipies and would be glad to share my methods. In this recipe I would use a white scauce with herbs of my choice in the moment and sauted mushrooms instead of the soup. The cheese would be added on top as a garnish for my husband. I look forward to seeing how it turns firstname.lastname@example.org"
"This is the first time I have made Quiche. I thought this recipe was pretty good. My son LOVED it but my husband did not care for it. I probably will not make it again for us."
"It looks delicious, but I'd have to make modifications by using ground turkey, soy bacon, yogurt, skim milk and soy cheese as we have high cholesterol and high triglycerides."
"I love quiches this one definitely taste like a cheeseburger. The only thing I would change next time is to use a frozen pie crust instead of the refridgerated sheets. I think the frozen pie crust taste better and would give more flavor to this delicious quiche."
"My "real-men-don't-eat-quiche" husband loves this recipe!"
"With a family of 7 it is hard to find a recipe that everyone will enjoy- well, this was a big hit with everyone! My girls have requested that I make this more often! Thanks, TOH!!"
"This is a keeper for sure. My husband couldn't control himself and went back for thirds. We will make this atleast once a month...."
"This is a wonderful quiche. It is full of flavor. The bacon and dill pickle relish really add flavor to this quiche. I wasn't sure how my husband would like it, because of the "green" bits in it, but he loved it too. I have made it twice in the last few weeks and we eat it right up."
"This was really good! When my picky eater son asked "What's for dinner?" I didn't think the word quiche would go over well with him so I told him we were simply having cheeseburger pie. Well, he absolutely loved it and so did the rest of my gang! There wasn't a morsel left over. The only thing I did different was I used a frozen pie shell. It still turned out awesome."
"WOW! My son and I loved it.He said 'Mom! make this once a week, OK'."
