DIRECTIONS

  • Brown ground beef. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix beans and ground beef.
  • Spray or grease sides of casserole dish.
  • Pour beef and bean mixture into 2.2L - 2.6L casserole dish (I use glass).
  • In a bowl make the corn bread as directed on the box.
  • Either spread corn over beef and bean mixture, or mix it into the cornbread batter.
  • Pour cornbread batter over beef and bean mixture (or corn if you spread it), and spread cornbread mixture evenly (making a little thin in the center is better, so it doesn't end up raw in the middle.
  • Bake for about 35-45 minutes, check for doneness of cornbread (I generally tap it or go off the color -- if you use cream corn, a toothpick will have a hard time coming out clean).
  • Let sit for 5 minutes after removing from oven.
  • Scoop into bowls and top with optional ingredients.
