Cornbread Hamburger Pie

Cornbread Hamburger Pie from Very Culinary

Ok. Wasn’t I just saying last week that I’m ready for lighter, and perhaps healthier, spring time food? I’m such a liar. But it’s unintentional. Blame my friend, Julie! She sent me this recipe and I knew immediately I had to make it. Salads were temporarily put on hold.

Like sloppy joes? Like corn bread? Then you will love this. We did. I took one bite and knew right away that I would make this often. It’s super easy, super tasty, quick, only requires one pan, inexpensive, and the kids inhaled it.

Some recipes are just meant to be made all year round. This is one of them!

Cornbread Hamburger Pie
Serves 4
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes

• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1 medium sweet onion, finely diced
• 1 pound ground beef
• salt and pepper
• 1 can (10 ounce) condensed tomato soup
• 1/4 cup salsa
• 2 tablespoon ketchup
• 1 package (8.5 ounce) Jiffy corn muffin mix
• 1 egg
• 1/3 cup milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a 10-inch ovenproof sauté pan, warm olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook the onion until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add in the beef and cook, breaking it up and stirring, until no pink remains, about 4-5 minutes; drain off grease. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the soup, salsa, and ketchup until thoroughly combined.

In the meantime, in a medium bowl, whisk together the corn muffin mix, egg, and milk. Let sit for 2 minutes.

Spoon the corn muffin mix over the beef. Bake, uncovered, for 15-20 minutes until golden browned.

Note: I thought it was great as is, but you could add in a chopped bell pepper if you like. And sprinkle in some red pepper flakes for more spice.

Even thought it was 95 degrees on Saturday, I made this for dinner. This was SO SUPER YUMMY and SO easy and quick. Jay even asked for thirds. I will definitely be making this a lot in the fall and winter months to come…and probably a few more times over the summer.

I’m so glad you guys liked it! I’ve made it countless times now :D

I thought I was ready for salads too! And then…the temps dropped again. So…that’s not happening. I’d love to curl up with this bowl of comfort! (you know…minus the hamburger part…but plus a loaf of cornbread).
