Recipe Corner: Mrs. Danbom's Cheeseburger Pie

My mom is downsizing in a major way, in preparation for their retirement next summer. So I'm occasionally receiving boxes of miscellaneous "stuff" from my former life. It's considerate of my mom to try to spread this out and not overwhelm me with the massiveness of our home all at once, and I'm glad to be doing this with my parents, while they're still alive--but I find it disruptive to have to deal with this in chunks out of the blue. And fun too. The other day I received some cookbooks from my childhood, beginner ones. In Better Homes and Gardens Junior Cookbook were a couple of handwritten recipe cards. One of them, marked "Ellen's from Mrs. Danbom" was from the mother of my best friend. I didn't eat meat as a child, either, so I don't know if she ever got me to eat this--maybe my mom requested it from her. But it'll be fun to try now, with some veggie crumbles substituted for the ground beef. It may even become my entry for next year's Good Food Pie Contest.
