  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add bacon and onion; cook and stir until sizzling, about 5 minutes. Add beef; season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Season with garlic salt and onion powder. Cook until browned, about 5 minutes more. Drain excess grease.

  • Whisk eggs, mayonnaise, and heavy cream together in a bowl. Pour over Cheddar cheese and beef mixture in the pie plate.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until set, about 45 minutes. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese on top. Continue baking until cheese is melted, about 10 minutes.

This came out great using 1 teaspoon each of onion powder and garlic powder, and 3/4 teaspoon of seasoned salt. Otherwise, I followed the rest of the recipe. Excellent! Read More

Made this for the first time tonight as I recently started on Keto. The topping is very tasty. The only change I might make next time is to add salsa or some liquid to the beef mixture. There was a lot of it and it was kind of dry. Read More

I thought this was a great base for any creative spins. For example, I used Elk instead of ground beef, "Slap your mama" seasoning, and Jalepeno with the onion. I would recommend cooking the bacon to crisp remove it then cook onions followed by burger. That way it stays bacon not fatty ham :) Read More

Sorry I just didn't like this which was so disappointing as I'd been looking forward to it! Pretty bland as written. I'd rather have sausage or maybe ham for added flavor. Would need to incorporate seasoning. However since it made quite a bit my husband was a trouper and ate it for lunch until it was gone. I remind myself that life would be dull if we all enjoyed exactly the same things! This isn't one of mine. Read More

Nice brunch quiche! Very versatile too. You could add chilies, mushrooms, green pepper... I followed the recipe with the exception of cooking the bacon separately then crumbling it into the cooked beef mix. Also used 1/2lb breakfast sausage along with the 1lb beef ‘cause it’s what I had. It’s a little salty so if you aren’t into that, you could go with garlic powder instead of garlic salt. Read More

Loved it. It was a breeze to make. I added a can of RoTel and used Miracle Whip since we hardly ever use Miracle Whip. I will make this again. Read More

I made this Quiche a couple of time I love it. What the instructions should also read is to season it to taste. But we love it in my house. Read More
