Spiced Beef Corn Bread Cobbler

I had a pound of ground beef in my fridge and I wanted to make something different (without having to go out and purchase lots of new ingredients) and I found this recipe on epicurious. I made a few alterations so my recipe is not exactly theirs but I like to believe BETTER!


1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
2 tbsp Veggie Oil
2 tsp minced garlic (mine was from a jar)
3/4 can of corn (drained)
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp sugar
1/2 ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp black pepper
3/4 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp salt
2 roma tomatoes, diced
1/2 tiny can tomato juice

1 box jiffy (made to boxes instructions but also add in 1 tbsp sugar, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 cup grated sharp Cheddar)... don't bake yet

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray pam on a pie plate. Cook Diced onion and bell pepper in oil in a skillet until edges are golden brown. Add in garlic and cook another minute. Add in beef and cook for a few minutes... once half the beef is brown add in corn and cook until all of beef has browned. Now add in sugar, spices, and 1 tsp salt and then cook another minute. Add in tomatoes and juice and simmer until liquid is about 1/4c. Now move beef mixture into pie plate and then pour cornbread mixture over it. Top with 1/4c of cheddar cheese. BAKE! around 20-25mins... make sure when you enter a toothpick it comes out clean!

Now I know you're reading these spices thinking REALLY???? but YES REALLY!!! IT's so good! It's perfect for a great winter dish... you think it's sweet, then it has a great kick then you get the cornbread! AMAZING!

Now enjoy!
