This is my own recipe that won First Place in a Quiche Bake-Off that we held in my department today.

I used a blend of mild and extra sharp cheddar cheeses. But use any cheese that suits your concept of "Philly Cheesesteak."

This recipe fills a 9-inch foil pie pan.

How to Make Philly Cheesesteak Quiche

Step-by-Step

  1. Prepare the unbaked pie shell. Preheat the oven to 375F. Preheat a 10-12" skillet on medium heat.
  2. Grease the skillet with oil/butter (your choice, but I prefer butter) and add the sliced onion and green pepper. Cook the onions and peppers until they are tender (not mushy) - about 10 minutes.
  3. While the skillet is busy, beat the eggs and milk together, and blend in the nutmeg, 1/2 tsp. salt and some ground black pepper.
  4. Add the deli roast beef, worchestshire sauce and garlic to the skillet and stir while continuing to cook another 3-5 minutes. (Taste the filling and check the seasoning!) Remove the filling from the skillet when finished and allow to cool for 5 minutes before adding to the custard mixture.
  5. Add to the custard mixture the meat/veggie filling and grated cheese. Mix well and pour into the pie shell.
  6. Bake the quiche for 45 minutes at 375F. Use a clean sharp knife to test for doneness (poke the center and see if it comes out clean). The center should not jiggle. (If not done - continue cooking another 5-10 minutes.)
