mom’s quick & easy quiche
This is not your serve on a doily, la-ti-da, fancy pants quiche. This quiche is for hungry people. I probably make it at least 6 times a year – it’s super easy to make, great for week lunch left-overs and the hubster raves over it. My mom gave me this recipe ages ago when I was first dabbling in my kitchen adventures because ANYBODY can make this. Queen Ina might pass out at putting ground beef in a quiche, but I’m telling you, it’s delicious!
1 1/2 lbs ground beef (I got 96/4 but you can really use whatever)
1 chopped large vidalia onion
1 1/2 chopped green pepper
1 1/2 bags shredded sharp cheddar
1 cup mayo (not the low fat stuff puh-lease)
8 eggs beaten
salt & pepper
2 pre-bought deep dish pie shells*
*I’ve made my own before and they are great, but quick and easy dudes, quick and easy.
Brown the ground beef with the chopped onions so they get cooked through. Let the ground beef and onions cool to room temperature off the heat. Once cooled, add to a large bowl with the green pepper and cheddar cheese. Beat eggs in a separate bowl and add to the ground beef mixture. Toss in a pinch of salt and pepper and mix completely. Mixture will not look super eggy, which is okay, the egg expands while cooking. Spoon into pie shells and be careful not to overfill. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes until lightly brown on the top. Let cool for a couple of minutes then EAT!
