Deluxe Corn Bread Casserole

Deluxe corn bread casserole falls somewhere between really moist corn bread and a cheesy spoonbread. The casserole starts with a box mix, so you can make this side dish in no time flat. Kids and adults will love it; and it's the perfect accompaniment to chicken, turkey, and even meat loaf.

If you're short on oven space — especially at holiday time — you can bake this dish for the first 30 minutes and then set it aside for a few hours. Just pop it in the oven with the cheese on top 15 minutes before you're ready to eat.

Try this recipe once, and it will be on your short list of fast and easy favorites!
