Posts Tagged ‘corn bread’

What part of this meal would any man not love?  A true meal in itself!  The corn bread adds the finishing touch and makes this super hearty after a long day out in the cold!  Best of all…it cooks at the same time in the oven and at most should take 30 – 45 minutes to prepare and bake…that includes the chopping and browning of the meat!

I am currently working on an anniversary present for my brother-in-law and his wife.  This recipe is sure to make the “book”.  Thanks to my sister, I have recently stumbled on a great company based out of Wisconsin called Bare Books.  I am using one of the company’s books to create a cookbook of sorts as a gift to them.  It will include many of my family’s favorite recipes that are kid friendly, adult loved and super easy to make!!!  Have you ever given the gift of recipes?

Hearty Beef and Bean Casserole

1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion – chopped
½ large red pepper – chopped
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
¾ C water
½ tsp soy sauce
16 oz can bushes baked beans
15 oz can butter beans
6 oz can tomato paste

Preheat oven to 400°.  In a large skillet, brown the beef, onion and red pepper.  Drain off the fat.  Add the remaining ingredients and stir well.  Pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish.  You will bake both items at the same time…see below!

Corn Bread

1 ¼ C flour
¾ C Corn Meal
¼ C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 C milk
¼ C apple sauce
1 egg beaten

Combine the dry ingredients.  Stir in the milk, apple sauce and egg.  Pour batter into a greased 8 or 9” pan (a pie plate works just fine).  Put the casserole and the corn bread both in pre-heated oven for 20 – 25 minutes or until the bread is a light golden brown and toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
