Friday Food: Western Beef & Corn Casserole

This is a good hearty recipe that's pretty easy to put together with what you probably have around the house. You can change the flavor depending on the type of barbecue sauce you use or how much chili powder you put in it. You could probably use beans or quinoa in place of the beef and make a vegetarian dish. This came from an old Taste of Home magazine.

Western Beef & Corn Casserole

1 pound ground beef
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp chili powder
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1-15oz can corn
1-8oz can tomato sauce

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup butter
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
1/2 cup milk
1 beaten egg

Brown ground beef; drain.
Stir in the remaining filling ingredients and set aside.
To make the crust, melt butter. Stir butter together with flour, cornmeal, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Blend in remaining crust ingredients except 1/2 cup cheese.
Spread crust mixture over the bottom and sides of a 9-inch round pie plate. Pour filling into crust.
Bake at 400 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle with reserved cheese during last few minutes of baking.
Yield: 6-8 servings.
