Cornbread Casserole

Our friend Jessica made this recipe for our weekly Thursday night dinner. It sounds like a hearty winter meal but you don't feel like hibernating after the meal. I think this is because of the sweetness of the cornbread. Don't eat it all because it's awesome for breakfast.

  1. 2 boxes jiffy corn muffin mix
  2. 2 eggs
  3. 4 Tbs butter, melted
  4. 1 Cup milk
  5. 1 Cup frozen corn kernels
  6. Olive oil for the pan

Topping

  1. 1 Lb ground chicken or turkey breast
  2. 3 garlic cloves, minced

  8. 1 Tbs Worcestershire
