1/4 green bell pepper chopped
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1 cup low fat cheese
1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees, grease or use cooking spray to coat a 9 x9 casserole dish.
2. Combine first seven ingredients and set aside.
3. Brown the ground turkey, dran excess fat and add onion, green pepper and chili powder.
4. Pour half of the cornbread mixture in the casserole, cover with turkey mixture and the cheese; pour the remainder of the cornbread batter over the top.
5. Bake for 30-35 minutes.
I made the following changes. It was good, but still needed something more. I used skim milk, instead of 1%. I used two ears of corn instead of a can of cream of corn...I am trying to eat only whole foods and I think I should have added something else for this substitute, maybe a Tbsp. of honey as creamed corn is sweet usually.
I also added a whole onion and bell pepper and I added the onion and green pepper to the turkey while browning it. I use very lean ground turkey and had to add olive oil to get it to brown. Next time, I'll add a little more chili powder too.
In the corn bread mixture I added a fresh jalepeno, chopped fine, for a little flavor and color. That was a great addition.
Overall, this was good...not great. I think tweaking the recipe a little more will make this a wonderful hearty dish to add to my repitore. Served with salad..but this is really a pretty complete meal in one. For time saving, you could use any corbread pre-mix that you like. I think Trader Joe's Cornbread mix is pretty darn good.
This is another one of those healthy, economical dishes. I would estimate it was less than $10 to make and you can get 6 nice sized servings.
