Stuffed Cornbread

Betty Gallagher Recipe

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.

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!

Hi :-)

I made this for dinner again 2nite. I actually had a lil bit of fun w/it this time using grt'd cheese, lftovr pork roast, a lil chicken & steamed grn beans (all chopped to sm pcs), and 1/2 an onion as suggested. What a wonderful versatile recipe :D I halved the recipe, sort of (jus the cornbread batter), to bake it in a smaller (8x8) pan. Topped w/sour cream.

I noticed that I didn't rate the recipe after making it last yr, must have got side tracked. Don't remember the thoughts of it frm then but do remember that it did seem jus a tad dry, both times. So hubby requested some salsa on the side. Oh & said it wasn't quite cheesy enuff but other then that it really is a pretty good dish.

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.
