This was pretty good, perfect for that crazy Monday night family meal. I (kind of) did a half recipe. Here is what I did: browned 1 lb ground meat (elk, actually) in a 10 inch oven-safe skillet, added 1 diced onion, 1 diced bell pepper (cuz I can't stand half a leftover onion or bell pepper hanging around), probably little more than a cup worth of frozen corn, the whole can of diced tomatoes and little more than half a cup or so of bbq sauce, and let that simmer until it started to thicken. I only had one box of corn bread mix on hand so I mixed that up, spread it on top of the mixture in the skillet (skipping the transfer to a 9x9 and another dish to wash) and put it in the oven for 20 minutes. Had I bothered to spread the cornbread batter out more evenly it would have covered the whole casserole just fine. As it was, it was plenty enough. My two-year-old and 9-year old both asked for seconds and my picky four year old ate every bite without too much protest (onions aren't her favorite). I had to put the leftovers away in a hurry to keep from eating too much! Overall, this was simple, fast and delicious. I think I'll make this again, though I might take more liberties with it in the future. Stirring shreds of cheddar into the cornbread batter before baking sounds fun. How about crumbled bacon? Frozen peas? Mmmmm, the possibilities! Well done, themamalion! Thank you!
