Tonight's recipe is Upside-Down Salsa Cornbread
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1 medium green or red bell pepper, seeded and cut into rings
2 cups Martha White Buttermilk Self Rising Corn Meal Mix
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon sugar (I left out)
1 (16 ounce) jar chunky style salsa
1 1/4 cups milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten (out of our hen house of course)
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees
2. Make the filling: Heat the oil in a 10 1/2 inch cast iron skillet over medium heat until hot. Add the ground beef, onion, chili powder, salt and garlic salt; cook until the beef is not longer pink, stirring frequently and breaking up any clumps of meat. Remove the beef mixture from the skillet to a bowl. Place the bell pepper rings in a single layer in the bottom of the skillet. Spoon the beef mixture over the rings.
3. Make the topping: Stir together the corn meal mix, cheese, sugar, salsa, milk, oil, and egg in a medium bowl; stir until well blended. Spread the batter evenly over the beef mixture in the skillet. Bake until golden brown, 32 to 38 minutes.
4. Place a serving plate over the skillet; carefully invert and remove the skillet. Cut into wedges. Or you can serve from skillet.
|Unfortunately some of the green pepper rings did not come out whole.|
Some substitutes I made:
My best friend and my youngest daughter sell Wildtree organic foods. I substituted the Wildtree Texas Corn Bread for the Martha White mix. I also used Wildtree Grapeseed Oil instead of the Vegetable oil. Grapeseed oil is a healthier way to go. I also substituted the jar of salsa with Wildtree Salsa mix that you add to canned tomatoes. Doing this lowers the salt count on the dish. On a side note if you are interested in these organic foods you can e-mail me and I can direct you to someone that can help you find them.
When I picked up the mail today I received my Farmgirl Sisterhood Certificate and badge! I am Farmgirl number 4048. Now I will need to decide what badge to work for next. How fun!
