Recipe: Hamburger Spinach Quiche

A friend of mine says the unsophisticated ingredients disqualify this recipe from being a TRUE quiche, but its got eggs, spinach, cheese, and a pie crust, so you tell me Whatever it is, its delicious, and my picky kids even eat it

Hamburger Spinach Quiche Ingredients

  • 1 (9 inch) unbaked deep dish pie crust

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • cup diced onion

  • 2 large eggs

  • teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon pepper

  • ? teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup heavy cream

  • 2 (10 ounce) boxes frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained

  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

How to Make Hamburger Spinach Quiche

  1. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Chill the pie crust at least 20 minutes before baking to prevent shrinkage.

  2. Prick the pie crust with a fork and line with a double layer of aluminum foil and a layer of pie weights or dried beans. Bake in the preheated oven until edge of crust is golden, about 10 minutes. Carefully remove the foil and weights and bake until the crust has set, about 5 minutes more.

  3. Cook and stir the ground beef and onion in a large skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is crumbly, evenly browned, and no longer pink. Drain and discard any excess grease. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl with the salt, pepper, and nutmeg until smooth. Whisk in the heavy cream, followed by the spinach and the beef mixture. Pour into the prepared pie crust and sprinkle with Cheddar cheese.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean, 35 to 45 minutes. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before slicing.

Hamburger Spinach Quiche Reviews

  • ALERT - their must be a typo in the recipe, should only be one 10 oz box of frozen spinach. Otherwise, GREAT dinner. I used a pre-made pie crust (thawed overnight in fridge) and barely fit the mix with just one box of spinach included (two boxes would have been crazy). Very filling and yummy

  • This was really good... I didnt have spinach on hand, but I did have chopped broccoli which made a wonderful substitution.

  • I made a recipe based on this yesterday, and it turned out to be quite delicious I used ground breakfast sausage in place of the hamburger, 1c onion, and fresh spinach in place of frozen. After browning the sausage & onions, i put the spinach into the pan & covered it for it all to steam until the spinach wilted. Drain it well The sausage I used was incredibly lean and didnt make any grease, so i added a tbsp of bacon drippings to the pan before adding sausage and onion. I had a deep baking dish and smaller eggs fresh from a farm, so I used 6 eggs and 1 1/2 c. milk. Left out the nutmeg, but added shredded grana padano cheese (can use parmesan instead) into the mix. Topped it with shredded Colby instead of cheddar. It was incredibly good. My husband called it the best quiche hes ever had

  • This turned out tasty with some modifications. I added about a cup of mashed butternut squash to add more veg. Ended up using 3 eggs to boost the protein some more. I put the ground beef and veg mixture into the bottom of the pie pan, sprinkled the cheese, and poured on the eggs and milk. I added the seasonings in and added some red pepper too, into the meat mixture while it was cooing.Also forgot to prebake the crust, but it turned out fine baking 375 for 1 hour. Overall, really yummy. I am just awful at following a recipe as written. ;)

  • Very hearty meal, thats for sure. I added some chopped orange pepper just to add more veggies, and I used goat cheese instead of cheddar. I didnt put in as much spinach as called for--it really is a lot just with one package, trust me If this had ham in it, it really would be green eggs and ham The submitter is correct--this really isnt a true quiche, but thats okay. Very similar. Thanks for the recipe

  • I made this without the crust to keep it low carb. Its a good, solid recipe. Not fancy or outstanding, but it does give you a different option for hamburger than the usual standbys. I added 2 additional eggs and baked it in a greased pie plate. It is worthy of keeping it in my favorites for future use

  • DELISH Not having the ground beef, I used 8 leftover large meatballs coated with sauce, diced into cubes instead, and stirred the 1 cup of cheese into the egg mixture. I only covered the pie crust with 2 layers of foil, and put it into the oven for 10 minutes total, before adding the egg/meat/spinach/cheese filling. I had no weights or beans. This quiche was SOOOO good. Will definately make this again

  • The poster of this recipe is correct. I made this pretty much exactly as posted. The two 10 oz. boxes of spinach DO fit. In a deep dish pie crust. This is more like a spinach beef pie rather than a quiche. The eggs and cream are not so obvious in the end result. Thats okay because its yummy I eat ALOT of vegetables so maybe thats why I like it so much:) You need to like spinach in order to like this. I wouldnt make this for my husband because he doesnt really like cooked spinach. But he is in the military and isnt here right now... Ah I almost forgot to be totally fair I only used 12 oz. of ground beef instead of a pound. Thats all that I had in the freezer.

  • Love it I used 1 box spinach and 3 eggs. Half made and discovered I had no milk of any kind but canned milk. So I diluted it a bit and the quiche was great. Also I did not precook the crust and it was perfect.

  • I made this and changed two things, I added double the nutmeg and two more eggs. I would suggest adding more spices or a sharper stronger cheese. I will make this again.

  • Ive been cooking for over 50 yrs. and thought Id try this. 2 boxes of spinach is way too much, and it leaked all over--good thing I put it on a cookie sheet in the oven. The cheese should have been sprinkled on the last 10 minutes or so--had to cover with foil to keep it from burning. The kids didnt like it, although they love different kinds of quiche. So much for that.

  • Really good Used a frozen tender flake pastry crust, pre baking as per instructions. I found I had a good full cup of filling too much for it. I just microwaved the excess filling and had a preview of what was to come. Delicious When I made it a second time, I added about a tsp. of MSG to the mix. Even better Yummy.
