Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche

Quiche?  Cheeseburger?  What is there not to like?

This was supposed to be tonight's dinner but I was running so late today, Jasmine had to stay in for Character Counts Club and by the time I got the ball rolling on dinner it was almost 6 pm.

We're used to eating around 5 or 5:30pm, so it was McDonald's for dinner because you know, you have kids who come home from school starving.

But I went ahead and made it anyway and it will be tomorrow's dinner.  Of course I had to cut out a piece and try a little and boy is it yummy.

Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche
From Taste of Home, adapted from Noble Pig

1 refrigerated pie crust (or make your own or use a frozen deep-dish pie shell)
3/4 lb. 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 eggs
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup milk
2 teaspoons prepared mustard
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1-1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese (I used extra sharp)
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
Optional garnishes: Additional pickle relish, crumbled cooked bacon, chopped onion and tomato, mayonnaise and shredded lettuce

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, onion, relish and bacon. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, mustard, pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Set aside.

Unroll pie crust into a 9" deep-dish pie plate (make sure it's deep dish, otherwise, the mixture will not fit) and flute the edges. To make refrigerated pie crust fit into a deep-dish plate, roll it out a little bit more with a rolling pin. You can make your own pie crust or purchase frozen deep dish pie crusts; just make sure it's completely thawed out. Transfer meat mixture into prepared crust. Pour egg mixture over the meat and use a fork to move the meat around, letting the egg mixture settle in between. Sprinkle with cheeses.

Bake at 375 degrees for 45-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. If necessary, cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning. Let stand for 15 minutes before cutting.
