Cheeseburger Quiche

Cheeseburger Quiche-4

This food mashup is particularly delicious. Cheeseburger Quiche is a quiche made with ground beef and cheddar with a tater tot crust. It’s all the best parts of breakfast (eggs and tater tots) combined with a cheeseburger. Charles gave this meal two very enthusiastic thumbs up, and had a second helping (and usually he isn’t that into quiche).

You could definitely use the tater tot crust along with any quiche recipe – it is a gluten free alternative to using a pie crust. While I used a pie pan, you could use a casserole dish instead if you want to make a larger batch. The tater tots were crispy on the outside, while on the inside of the quiche the potatoes absorbed the egg a little, giving the quiche a texture similar to that of a Spanish Omelette. So the end result is a little bit different than quiche with a pie crust, but I think that it tastes even better.

This cheeseburger quiche really does taste like a cheeseburger and fries meets a quiche. It’s a little out of the box, but oh so good.

You might have noticed that I have been playing around with time lapse videos. I need to work on the lighting, but I think they are a fun addition to my posts. Hope you like it!

Cheeseburger Quiche Prep time: 20 mins Cook time: 50 mins Total time: 1 hour 10 mins Serves: 6

Save Recipe


  • About 2 cups of Tater Tots
  • 1/2 pound Ground Beef
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 6 Eggs
  • 2/3 cup Cream or Whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar
  • a 9 inch pie pan


  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees, then arrange a single layer of tater tots in a pie pan. (Check out the video in this post for a visual).
  2. Bake the tater tots for 10 minutes.
  3. While the tater tots are cooking, brown the beef. Place the beef in a skillet over medium heat, season generously with salt and pepper, and use a wooden spoon to stir the beef and break it up into small pieces. Cook until just browned.
  4. Then whisk the eggs, cream, and a dash of salt and pepper together.
  5. Once the tater tots have baked for 10 minutes, use a spoon to crush them to create a crust. Then bake for another 10 minutes. Then top with the beef, eggs, and cheese.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 minutes, and then finish it off by cooking under broil to brown. Slice and serve!
