Recipe: Roadside Diner Cheeseburger Quiche

1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry 
3/4 lb  ground beef 
2 plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped 
1 medium onion, chopped 
1/2 c dill pickle relish 
1/2 c crumbled cooked bacon 
5 eggs 
1 c heavy whipping cream 
1/2 c 2% milk 
2 t prepared mustard 
1 t  hot pepper sauce 
1/2 t salt 
1/4 t pepper 
6 oz shredded cheddar cheese 
1/2 c shredded Parmesan cheese
Optional garnishes: mayonnaise, additional pickle relish, crumbled cooked bacon, and chopped onion and tomato

1.  Unroll pastry into a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate; flute edges and set aside. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, onion, relish and bacon. Transfer to prepared pastry.  

2.  In a large bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, milk, mustard, pepper sauce, salt and pepper. Pour over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheeses.

3.  Bake at 375° for 50-60 minutes or until a knife inserted near the centre comes out clean. Cover edges with foil during the last 15 minutes to prevent overbrowning if necessary. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Garnish with optional ingredients if desired. 

Yield: 8 servings

Notes:  I didn't use the pie pastry.  I substituted 1-1/2 c milk for the cream/milk combo, which made this pretty liquidy, so I need to remember to use less milk next time (especially since I only use fat-free milk).  I didn't use the Parmesan cheese, because I think that's a migraine trigger for me.
