I’ve had my eye on this recipe since I saw it last week in the Dinner Challenge pool.
|4||apples –peeled and thinly sliced|
|1||pound||turkey kielbasa –sliced 1/4″ thick|
|10.5||ounces||corn muffin mix –(2 boxes)|
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Place apples in a pot that has been drizzled with olive oil. Cook for 10 minutes on medium heat, stirring occassionally.
- In a medium bowl, combine cornbread mixes with the milk, stirring well.
- Once the apples are done, pour them and their juices in a 9×13″ baking pan. Add the kielbasa and distribute evenly throughout the pan. Pour the cornbread mixture over the top, gently spreading around with a spatula.
- Place pan in the oven, and cook for 20 minutes (or until top is lightly golden).
I wasn’t entirely sure I’d be able to sell this meal to the boys, so I only prepared half of the recipe as directed. The other half of the ingredients I made separately. Eamonn ate everything, which is always a nice suprise. Aidan only ate the apple, which was not a surprise in the least .
My thoughts on this recipe? I liked it, but I don’t think I’d make it again as written. I’d probably leave the apples out – I wasn’t fond of the sweetness (or the mushy slime factor) of cooked apples in the corn bread. If nothing else, making this tonight has reminded me how much I like corn bread. I have to remember to have a couple of mixes on hand for when the whim strikes. I hear Trader Joe’s has a killer corn bread mix…
