I was shocked at how much I enjoyed this Hamburger Quiche. I had a friend over when I was making it and we both couldn’t stop eating it. I was going to give her the leftovers, but ended up keeping them for myself. I’m usually not that greedy and love to share, but this easy quiche recipe was one I couldn’t stop thinking about!
It may look like your regular run-of-the-mill quiche. Eggs, cheese in a pastry crust. However, it has a “secret” ingredient that adds such a wonderful creaminess to the filling. Mayonnaise.
All I know is that I’m adding mayonnaise to my quiche recipes from now on. Seriously, try it!
It’s creamy, cheesy and hearty. I couldn’t eat just one piece. I had to have two and so did my friend.
How to Make Hamburger Quiche
To save time, use a ready-made pie shell that you bake yourself. I’m lazy so I often use them in my recipes. If you prefer your own homemade crust, use your favourite recipe and kudos to you!
I also drained the ground beef after I cooked it so it wasn’t too greasy. I like to use lean ground beef in my recipes.
To start, spread the ground beef on the bottom of the unbaked pie shell. Then add the cheddar cheese, green onions and a dash of pepper.
Stir the mayonnaise, milk, eggs and cornstarch together in a bowl and pour into the pie shell.
It bakes for 35 minutes at 400F. Enjoy it fresh from the oven.
