This uber-tasty hamburger quiche is all kinds of delicious. It’s creamy, cheesy, and hearty enough to satisfy those comfort food cravings in a single slice. But I’m being honest, I always struggle to stop at just ONE slice. Seriously, I can never stop eating this dish when I make it!

Now, this might look like a regular quiche made with eggs. However, what makes this hamburger quiche a next-level dinner option is my secret ingredient – mayonnaise! It adds an incredible creaminess to the filling and makes each bite completely rich and indulgent.

When you pair that creaminess with the melted cheddar cheese and savory ground beef? Well, you’ll have a new weeknight marvel on your hands! Better yet, this easy recipe stores well for several days (leftovers, anyone?).

Why You’ll Love This Hamburger Quiche

  • It’s super easy to make thanks to the pre-made pie shell and combination of simple ingredients.
  • The cheddar cheese mixes with the mayonnaise to create a hearty, creamy, and indulgent filling.
  • The ground beef adds plenty of protein to the mix that saves you whipping up any extra sides.
  • It’s packed with pantry staples that you’re likely to have lying around throughout the week.
  • Most of the recipe’s cooking time takes place in the oven (so, it’s perfect for multi-tasking!).


The full printable recipe card with measurements and instructions is found at the bottom of the post.

  • Unbaked deep dish pie shell: Using an unbaked pie shell cuts down tons of prep time. Just grab one from the grocery store and you’ll be good to go.
  • Ground beef: I like using leaner ground beef for this recipe as the mayonnaise adds a decent amount of fat. Anything between 5% and 10% will work well.
  • Mayonnaise: This is the key ingredient that makes this hamburger quiche seriously creamy and satisfying. You can use low-fat mayo or full-fat mayo, but the full-fat will be far more indulgent.
  • Milk: Adds creaminess to your quiche mixture. You can use any variety of dairy milk, but whole milk will have the richest flavor.
  • Large eggs: Crucial to any tasty quiche! Try to use free-range eggs if you can, as they’ll have the freshest flavor and the yellowest yolks.
  • Cornstarch: To thicken your quiche mixture just a touch.
  • Cheddar cheese: For the ultimate cheesy taste that makes this recipe taste just like a burger.
  • Green onions: Gives each bite a slightly crispy texture (while giving your quiche a touch of color!).
  • Pepper: To taste.

Recipe Tips and Tricks

  • Don’t over-whip the quiche filling. You’ll want to make sure everything’s well-incorporated, but I recommend whisking the eggs separately. This way, you won’t accidentally overbeat the mixture.
  • If you’re worried about the pie crust browning too much, you can cover the edges with tin foil.
  • Don’t pre-bake the crust beforehand. You might think you need to do this, but everything goes into the oven at the same time!
  • Season the ground beef well before cooking. Salt and pepper are perfectly fine, but I definitely recommend adding something to your meat.

Variations and Substitutions

  • You can easily switch out the ground beef for ground pork, ground chicken, or any other protein of your choice. To make this recipe veggie-friendly, try Quorn mince! Just remember that changing the protein may make it taste less like an old-school cheeseburger.
  • You’re welcome to change out the veggies in this recipe. Although I love spring onions, peppers can be delicious (and crunchy!) alternatives.
  • To add extra protein and savory flavor to this recipe, throw in some chopped-up bacon.

Storage Instructions

This quiche stores well in the fridge for 3 or 4 days, but you’ll want to check the crust for sogginess before eating.

Just put it in an airtight storage container (slice it up if you need to!) and you’ll be good to go.

When you need to reheat it, just put a piece in the microwave or back in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Can I Freeze?

I don’t recommend freezing this hamburger quiche, as you run the risk of the pie crust going soggy when defrosted.
