Recipe by Anita Harris
I can't remember where I got this recipe but have had it for years. I always make this when I have cooked a big pot of pinto beans and ham. It's a nice change from your standard cornbread. My husband does not like cornbread or anything with cornmeal but always looks forward to me making this when we have beans. I have made it often and always get lots of compliments.

I made this for a pot luck banquet dinner. I thought it tasted great. I used a box of Jiffy cornbread mix instead of cornmeal. It came out great. The cornbread mixture is thin. The meat sort of sinks into the mixture. I was concerned when I was putting it together, but it came a great. 45 min cooking time worked perfectly.
