A good, quick recipe--even the kids liked it (and I've since given it to a few friends who enjoyed it). I did, however, make a change: I used Jiffy cornbread mix over the top to make it a truly easy meal. A keeper for use after a long day!



For a quick, easy "pantry meal," I thought this was great. Gourmet? Of course not; but quick, tasty & satisfying. I followed another reviewer's suggestion to add garlic & more Worschstershire, which I would not recommend -- overpowered the sweetness of the creamed corn, which I think is really meant to complement the cornbread topping.

This dish was alright, but I can't say that I'd make it again. The combination just wasn't quite right to me and it seemed a little on the dry side.
