One thing I really enjoy about this book is that it explains when and where the original recipe came from. For example today’s recipe, Souperburgers begins with this brief description: “Back in 1959 Campbell’s test kitchens developed this “souper” easy hearty main dish. Good cooks around the world still write in for this recipe. The results never disappoint them.” If nothing else it’s an interesting read but luckily it's a great recipe too.
Baby Cakes was treated to lunch at work and wasn't hungry (although he didn't tell me that until after I toasting the buns) but after he saw what I made he said he wanted one. He and I agree that they are amazing. They have so much flavor. The gumbo soup really makes it in this recipe. I would have to say that this recipe is better than Sloppy Joes. This is the new offical Bennett house sloppy-esque sandwich recipe.
from the Best Recipes Cookbook
1 pound ground beef
½ cup onion, chopped
1 can Campbell’s Chicken Gumbo Soup
2 tablespoons catsup
1 tablespoon mustard
6 buns, split and toasted
Brown beef and cook onion in skillet until tender (use shortening, if necessary); stir to separate meat. Add soup and seasonings. Heat; stir often. Cook until the majority of liquid is cooked down. Serve on toasted buns. Makes about 3 cups.
Now don't be put off by the fact that there is rice in it you don't even notice and who knows that might just be what takes it over the top.
Yum! Really that's all there is to say about that.
