Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche Recipe

My savory main-dish quiche tastes just like its burger counterpart. Easy and appealing, it's pretty enough to serve guests. —Barbara J. Miller, Oakdale, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + standing YIELD:8 servings


  • 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 shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Optional garnishes: mayonnaise, additional pickle relish, crumbled cooked bacon, and chopped onion and tomato


  • 1. 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.
  • 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 at 375° until a knife inserted in center comes out clean, 50-60 minutes. 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.

"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."

"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!"

"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."

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.
