Stuffed Cornbread

By Betty Gallagher Benana


My family has enjoyed this recipe for years. I usually put the jalapeno slices only on half the pan for those who like the heat. But be sure and mark it, so you'll know which half is hot! It's good with a bowl of pinto beans and a salad.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Hearty, satisfying and full of flavor, this comforting crowd-pleaser would also be a-maz-ing topped with chili.


2 pkg
cornbread mix, into batter as directed
12 slice
american cheese
1 lb
lean hamburger meat
1/2 medium
onion, chopped
1/2 medium
bell pepper, chopped
fresh jalapenos, sliced (optional)

Directions Step-By-Step

Heat oven to 425. Spray 13X9 pan with oil.
Brown meat with onion and bell pepper in skillet. Add salt and pepper to taste. Drain and set aside.
Pour half of cornbread batter in pan. Place 6 slices of cheese over batter.
Spread meat over cheese evenly. Add jalapeno slices if desired.
Top with remaining slices of cheese . Pour the rest of the batter on top.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until brown on top. Let cool for about 10 minutes. Enjoy!

I don't have "envelopes" of cornbread mix. I have a big box of cornmeal. I wasn't sure how much I was supposed to make but I think I have it figured out. Goin' to the kitchen now to make this for dinner... ;-)

I made it at first thought it wasn't enough corn bread, but it was just enough. I added drained corn and instead of hot peppers I added hot pepper cheese. It was pretty good. Everyone went back for seconds so they enjoyed it also.

A big pot of red beans (pinto) goes well with this dish.
