Grandmas Hamburger Pie With Cornbread Topping

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 45 mins

My grandma made this for us as kids all the time. She passed away two years ago and I recently came across a lot of her recipes and wanted to share them with the Zaar world. I hope you enjoy this as much as we did. It's a quick and easy one dish meal. I always fix up a salad to go with it. This recipe has lots of possibilities. You could add green beans and potatoes to the mixture as well.Addition: I have realized that I did leave out an ingredient in the topping. I found the recipe and looked and--sure enough, you need milk.

I tried this last night and was pleasantly surprised. The flavor was great for a recipe with a few ingredients most people will always have on hand. I would suggest baking it less than the suggested time though. The topping got a little harder than I would have liked. It's definitely a dish I would make again. The directions were perfect but I would tell you that you can't pour the topping's too thick for that. But it was easy to spoon on and spread easil.

This dish could have benefited from some extra garlic or worcestershire sauce or something, it was a little bit bland as written but overall it was still very good. I'll definitely make this again, just jazzed up to suit our tastes. Thanks for posting!

This was very good. My husband and I really enjoyed it! My son didn't like it so much, but he's 2. He's picky. As for the recipe, I followed it for the most part. I did add a dash of worcestershire sauce to the meat mixture for added flavor. I also used Jiffy mix cornbread. Thanks for sharing this recipe, I will make it again.
