Cornbread Pie Recipe
This slightly spicy beef and cornbread pie is a complete meal alone. All you need to add is a big glass of sweet Southern ice tea.
If you like hamburger and cornbread with a Mexican touch, you will love this simple casserole. The tomato based filling is full of corn and hamburger that is spiced mildly and topped with crunchy cornbread. A very filling dish.
