• Cheeseburger Quiche! Posted on May 20, 2013

    Cheeseburger Quiche! With pickles, of course!! You gotta admit a name like Cheeseburger Quiche piques your interest when you read it. What in the world is in it? That’s what I wondered. After seeing this recipe in several places, and seeing it uses dill pickles, I just had to to try it!!


    Tart Crust

    9 inch deep dish or 11 inch pie dish
    1 cup flour
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    6 Tablespoons cold butter
    1 egg yolk
    2 Tablespoons cream or milk

    Combine flour and salt. Incorporate butter until mixture resembles coarse meal.

    Whisk egg yolk and cream and add to flour mixture stirring until a ball forms. Roll out on floured board, (adding flour if dough is too sticky) to desired shape.

    Place in pie dish and flute edges. Chill in refrigerator at least 20 minutes while you make filling.

    Cheeseburger Quiche ( my version)

    9 inch deep dish or 11 inch pie dish

    1 pound ground beef
    2 tomatoes, chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped
    ½ cup chopped dill pickle or pickle relish
    ½ cup cooked bacon, crumbled
    5 eggs
    1 cup heavy cream or milk
    2 teaspoons prepared mustard
    1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
    ¼ teaspoon salt
    ¼ teaspoon pepper
    1 ½ cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
    ½ cup Parmesan cheese

    Brown ground beef, drain if needed. Stir in tomatoes, onion, pickle and bacon, set aside.

    In a separate bowl, whisk eggs, cream, mustard, pepper sauce, salt and pepper.

    Spread meat mixture in chilled crust, pour custard mixture over meat, sprinkle with cheeses.

    Bake at 375°F for 50 – 60 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool at least 15 minutes before cutting. Best the next day though :)
