An easy-to-make supper--the thyme and garlic make it quite flavorful. For crust you just spread corn bread mix over the top. UPDATE: When I first posted this recipe, I listed the amount of flour as 1/4 cup. However, that is only necessary if the hamburger you're using has a very fatty content. Nowadays, I use fairly lean hamburger (90%), which doesn't yield as much juice, so I've cut the amount of flour in half to just 2 Tbsp. I think the 4 Tbsp (1/4 cup) works best with 75% or less lean ground beef. So adjust the amount of flour you use to reflect the fattiness of the beef.
