Active Prep Time: 30 minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes
1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion – chopped finely
Salt and pepper – to taste
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 8 1/2-ounce box corn bread and muffin mix
1/3 cup milk
1 can cream-style corn
2 cups pepper jack cheese – shredded
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter the bottom and sides of a large casserole dish.
Brown and drain ground beef and onion. Add seasoning and stir well.
In a small bowl, combine corn bread mix, egg, milk, and corn. Stir well.
Pour 1/2 cornbread mix in casserole dish. Add ground beef and spread evenly. Add cheese evenly. Add remaining cornbread mix.
Bake for 35 – 40 minutes.
When browning the beef, I added a minced garlic clove and beef base in addition to what the recipe calls for. I may have also added some chili powder and a smidge of cayenne at the last minute but don’t tell my hubby that. He’s blissfully unaware *evil grin*.
I did enjoy this recipe but I think I’ll make some additional changes the next time. The cornbread, while delicious, kind of overpowered…well just about everything else. I think I may try cutting the cornbread mixture in half and only putting it on top when baking. I would also add more corn (regular corn, not cream style).
