My savory main-dish quiche tastes just like its burger counterpart. Easy and appealing, this cheeseburger quiche is pretty enough to serve guests. —Barbara J. Miller, Oakdale, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
  • 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 shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Optional: Mayonnaise, additional pickle relish, crumbled cooked bacon, chopped onion and chopped tomato

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°. Unroll crust 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, breaking it into crumbles; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, onion, relish and bacon. Transfer to prepared crust.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, mustard, pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Pour over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheeses.
  3. Bake until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, 50-60 minutes. If necessary, cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish with optional ingredients as desired.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • Using lean ground beef instead of beef that’s 80% lean saves 45 calories per 4-ounce serving of beef. Lean ground beef is also 29% lower in saturated fat.
  • In Europe, Parmigiano-Reggiano and Parmesan are considered the same cheese. But in the U.S., Parmesan is a generic term that may not come from Italy’s Parmigiano-Reggiano region. Using the authentic Italian cheese (in a lesser amount than the original’s ½ cup) ensures a cheesy richness in the makeover with less fat and calories.
