We all looked forward to supper when Mom served this. Not difficult to make, but special all the same.

Ingredients

1/2 lb
bulk pork sausage
1/2 lb
ground beef
1/4 c
onion, chopped (half a medium)
15 oz
creamed corn (one regular can)
15 oz
peas, canned (one regular can or 1 cup frozen)
1/4 lb
american cheese or velveeta, cubed
8 oz
evaporated milk - reserve 1/2 cup for topping
1 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
BATTER:
1 c
baking mix (bisquick or similar brand)
1/2 tsp
salt
1 Tbsp
sugar
1
egg. beaten
1/2 c
reserved evaporated milk

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Brown meats and soften onion and set aside while next group of ingredients are assembled.
2
In large casserole or 9 by 13 inch baking pan, combine together peas, corn, cheese - which has been cubed or melted, - evaporated milk (don't forget to reserve 1/2 cup)and worcestershire sauce. Add the browned meats and onion and mix together thoroughly. You may want to add some salt and pepper at this point, it depends on how salty and seasoned your sausage and cheese is, and, of course, your own taste.
3
Place dish in preheated 400 degree F oven and bake while mixing the batter (about 10 minutes). Remove pan from oven and pour the batter over the dish being sure to cover the sides and corners well. Leave an open area in the center. Not only does that make for a nicer presentation, it allows steam to escape without breaking through your crust.
4
Continue baking at 400 degrees for 20 more minutes. Cool slightly, cut into squares and serve.

thanks! This is good info that you might want to add to your recipe. I always taste and adjust for seasoning if needed, but some people follow a recipe step by step and may not give it a good review just because it might need a little seasoning adjustment. Everyone's taste is dfferent...
