"Being raised on a farm in Mississippi, I was encouraged to cook at an early age by my grandmother and mother. I rarely depend on written recipes, but this is a classic."
1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (8.5 ounce) package corn bread/muffin
2/3 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and place in a bowl. Add brown sugar, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Prepare corn bread mix according to package directions. Fill greased muffin cups with a scant 2 tablespoons of batter. Top each with 2 tablespoons beef mixture; sprinkle with cheese. Top with remaining corn bread mix. Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers.
