Servings: 6 servings


  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 large onion , diced
  • 1 (15.25 ounces) can sweet corn, drained
  • 1 (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes, partially drained
  • 1/2 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 1 box Jiffy corn bread mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar or Mexican flavored cheese


  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Brown beef and onions in a large oven-proof skillet over medium high heat. (I use my 12-inch cast iron skillet). Drain excess oil. Add corn and tomatoes. Cook until veggies are soft (about 5 minutes). Meanwhile, using the 1 egg and 1/3 cup milk, mix the corn bread according to the package directions. Set aside to let rise for 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove the meat mixture from the heat and mix in BBQ sauce and cheese. If not using oven-proof skillet, pour into a 9x9-inch casserole dish. Spread the cornbread mixture evenly over the top of the casserole. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes, or until cornbread is golden brown and passes the toothpick test.
