Weekly Dillons Bargain Meal


I’m excited to join a new team of “grocery reporters” over at $5 Dinners. We’ll be bringing you weekly bargain meals based on the local ads in our specific areas. I shop at Dillons, and our sales run from Wednesday through Tuesday. Hopefully I’ll have my weekly bargain recipe posted each Wednesday night.

Today’s meal is Hamburger Quiche. I got this recipe from a family cookbook. It’s easy to double. I like to make two quiches and stick one in the freezer for a quick Plan B meal!  Dillon’s sale item prices are highlighted.  Pair with a green salad (fresh salad leaf lettuce = $1.00) for an inexpensive, tasty supper!

Hamburger Quiche

  • 9 in. unbaked pie shell (I make my own.)
  • 1/2 pound ground beef ($2.19 per pound = $1.10)
  • 1/2 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/2 c. milk
  • 2 eggs ($1.33 per dozen = $.22)
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese ($3.77 for 16 oz. = $1.41)
  • 1/3 c. sliced green onions

Brown meat in skillet over medium heat.  Drain fat and set aside.  Blend mayo, milk, eggs, and cornstarch until smooth.  Stir in meat, cheese, onion.  Turn into pastry shell.  Bake in 350° oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown on top and knife inserted in center comes out clean.

  1. What a fun idea. I love making meals that cost me $5 per person or under. I love to cook and am always experimenting with new recipes. My poor family, they seldom get the same meal twice unless we really just love a recipe. We are fish lovers and I found a fish casserole made with broccoli and cheese that was so yummy. We’ve made it a few times now. It’s fun to come “visit” blogs after bloggy carnival when I can take my time and read and comment.

  2. Bisquick has a recipe similar to this, but this one sounds SOOOOOOOOOOOO much better! How can you resist any recipe with a pie crust??? LOL. Def trying this one!

  3. Sounds yummy. Do you freeze the quiche before you cook it? Do you thaw it before reheating or cooking it?
