Bacon Cheeseburger Quiche

So here's the deal......I'm trying to loose a few lbs. (40 to be exact)--I'm hoping to loose enough weight before school starts so I can fit into my clothes and won't have to go in my underwear! I'm doing the low carb thing, and am always looking for new recipes that are carb friendly. I tried this one and it was pretty good. Next time I'm gonna add a chopped bell pepper for some added flavor.
Bacon Cheeseburger Quiche
6 servings
1 lb. very lean hamburger
1 small chopped onion
4 slices crisp-cooked bacon, chopped in bits
3 eggs
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup half-n-half
8 oz. shredded chedder or swiss cheese
garlic powder to taste (optional)
white pepper

Preparation Method:
Brown hamburger in skillet with onion. Remove and mix in bowl with bacon pieces, breaking up any larger clumps with a fork or pastry mixer until you have a fine mix. Drain well of any excess grease and press into the bottom of a deep-dish pie pan. Set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine remaining ingredients in mixer bowl and whip well. Pour mixture over beef "crust" and bake 40-45 minutes until top is browned and "set". Cool 15-20 minutes before slicing. This can be packaged in Ziplocs or plastic containers for meals quickly microwaved over the next 3-5 days. (Does not freeze well, though.)
