    I agree that the corn bread as called for is about twice what's needed. I use sweet corn cake mix instead, which you can buy at the grocery store. Because we like the corn cake so much on its own we don't mind having extra. I also serve this with sour cream.

    Wonderful - a staple recipe in our household. I do use a bit more meat than the recipe calls for (about 1/3 of a pound more). I also add one large chopped green pepper to the meat mixture. The meat mixture can be prepared ahead of time (while the baby naps??) making it an easy weekday meal.

    very tasty

    I tried this recipe over the weekend. It tasted great. It just needs more filling or less cornbread topping. The cornbread seems to dominate.

    I MADE ONE CHANGE. I USED BISQUICK IN PLACE OF CORN MUFFIN MIX. WE LOVED IT. EASY TO MAKE. WILL MAKE IT AGAIN - CHOPPY
