I love this sandwich that is a signature dish at Denney's, Moon Over My Hammy. Like most things, it is much more economical to make at home and even, dare I say, better! I originally grilled this in butter, but after reading Dawnab's recipe for Grilled Cheese Diner Style, I will only grill sandwiches in mayo. You can use whichever you like best. This is great for a Sunday morning breakfast with fresh fruit.
My mother made these for us four girls. Money was tight and she couldn't afford steak very often. These use ground beef. I use a 80/20 lean to fat. You can use ground round but it tends to be a little too dry. This is great with mashed potatoes. Everyone I have ever made it for loved it. The first time my DH had it he never knew it was ground beef. He just commented on the tenderness of the steak!
This is another one of my mother's recipes. This soup is very satisfying in the fall. I like it with my mother's cornbread recipe, that is also posted here. For those on a low fat or low salt diets, this is easily adapted by leaving out the cream and salt.
This is my mother's recipe. It was on the menu at every cafe she cooked. This cornbread has a great crisp crust yet the inside is soft and tender. It is a perfect accompaniment to soups, stews and the southern standard, "a big ole pot of brown beans."
