Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche

I tried a new recipe last night for supper and just had to share: Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche.  I make a habit of perusing back issues of some of my cooking magazines.  I have stacks of Taste of Home, Quick Cooking, and Simple & Delicious issues and have them sorted out by seasons so I can look through them at the right time.  I found this recipe in the February/March 2010 issue of Taste of Home.

We loved this quiche!  I made quite a few changes in the recipe, but it was still yummy.  I made 2 quiches because I wanted to give my dad part of one.  So I made one with a regular pie crust and one with a gluten free pie crust (both homemade).  I used quite a bit less ground beef -- less than a half pound for each one.  I think you could even get by with a quarter pound in each one.  I used bacon bits rather than cooking bacon, and used probably 1/3 cup for both quiches -- so, 2 to 3 tablespoons in each.  With the dill relish, I used about 1/2 cup for both quiches -- about 1/4 cup in each one.  The liquid seemed like it would be too much.  I used 1 cup of fat-free half and half and 1/2 cup of 2% milk for both quiches, so it was about 3/4 cup cream/milk in each quiche.  I didn't measure the cheese -- just sprinkled it on.  Probably 1/2 cup to 3/4 cup on each one.  I topped them with just a shake or two of grated parmesan, as I didn't have any of the shredded type on hand.

I served this with green beans and a spring mix/baby spinach salad on the side.  Mr. T said this is a "keeper" recipe, and I completely agree!
