Gram's Sloppy Joe Skillet Supper

Over on my families recipe blog we are trying to gather and share as many recipes from our Grandmother as we can. She is passed on and raised her 6 children during and just after the depression. It certainly had a lifelong impact on her cooking. She could whip up a dinner for any crowd stopping in, in no time and seemingly out of nothing!



Our cooking styles may have changed over the years, but documenting family recipes as well as just good old fashioned meals with good basic comforting ingredients really never goes out of style.

Here is one from my grandmothers files and is a perfect way to use those leftover mashed potatoes from a Sunday Meal.

Sloppy Joe Skillet Supper

Ingredients: 
1 lb. hamburger
1 med. onion diced
1 can tomato soup
1 package sloppy joe seasoning packet
3 cups mashed potatoes
1/2 cup grated cheese.

Directions:
Brown hamburger and onions.
Drain grease
Pour hamburger into 1 qt. casserole dish or bake directly in your oven proof skillet.
Stir in 1 can tomato soup and sloppy joe seasoning packet
Top with mashed potatoes
Sprinkle cheese evenly over the potatoes.
Bake in 350 ° oven for 20 min or until warmed and cheesy is bubbly.

  1. Jan, I love remembering the things my grandmothers cooked. Isn't it interesting the lasting effect the Depression had on those who went through it either as adults or children? And even on those raised by those who were children during the Depression! Like yours, my grandmother could "whip up a dinner ... seemingly out of nothing." Wish I had the knack!

    1. So true, the lessons learned from the depression are being lost, and it's sad.
