Delicious Turkey Cornbread Bake

Pin It

This is not my recipe.  I got it from a mommy friend who got it from a mommy friend... and it is the perfect mommy weekday dinner: quick, easy, healthy.

You will need:

1 lb ground turkey (I used extra-lean turkey breast)
1 box of corn bread mix (and whatever used to prepare it - Jiffy is 1/3c milk and 1 egg)
1 packet of taco seasoning (I used the Chipolte-flavored.  You could use homemade mix, too.) 
1 can of black beans, drained (14oz)
1 can of corn, drained (14oz) 
2 small or 1 large summer squash
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.  

Mix the taco seasoning and turkey together.  Brown turkey in a skillet. Add beans and a little water if needed.  (I added 1/4c.) 

While the meat is browning, prepare the corn bread batter, following the directions on the box.  Stir in the corn and most of the cheese.

In a glass pan mix meat and summer squash together.  Top with the corn bread mixture.  Sprinkle the remaining cheese on and bake until corn bread is cooked through, about 15 minutes if the cornbread mix is about 1/4 inch thick.  Keep an eye on it.

I put hot sauce on mine, and we all had seconds.  Husband requested this to be a "once every other week" dish.  

Salsa or a can of diced tomatoes would have worked nicely in this as well, but it really isn't needed.
