Beef and Cheddar Quiche

This recipe has been a family favorite for years. It's easy to prepare and perfect for a busy schedule. I've also made this recipe with salmon - substituting two cans for the ground beef and adding 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice. It's great!

    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound ground beef
  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook the beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Meanwhile, line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 5 minutes. Remove foil; bake for 5 minutes more. Set aside.
  • Drain beef; place in a large bowl. Add the eggs, mayonnaise, milk, onion, cornstarch, salt, pepper and 1 cup cheese. Pour into crust. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • If necessary, cover the edges of crust with foil to prevent overbrowning. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Let stand 5-10 minutes before cutting.
