In case your wondering, he is lying on Kellan's gym/mat thing. Kellan rarely plays with it anymore so I moved it into the office for when we are in there. But, Kellan would much rather scoot over to my computer and play with that. I think he's gonna be a computer dork like daddy, he's obsessed.

1 ½ cup milk
1 ¾ cup yellow cornmeal
¾ tsp soda
¾ tsp salt
1/3 cup oil
1 can cream style corn
Pour ½ of this mixture in a greased oblong pan or large iron skillet. Sprinkle with:
1 lb browned & seasoned ground beef
1 onion, chopped
2 chopped hot peppers
½ lb grated cheese
Pour rest of batter over mixture; bake @ 450 for 45 to 60 minutes.
I would assume you could use a pkg of cornbread mix these days and it would work the same ??

This recipe has been in our family since I was a girl in the late l950's. We lived next door to Lloyd & Maxine Dudley on Klondike in Dallas, Texas. Lloyd was a dental student at Baylor University downtown Dallas. Maxine made Chicken Tetrazzinni one day & invited us over for dinner. We loved it ! And mother got the recipe & we've been using this recipe since then. It's great & great for leftover Chicken or Turkey after the holidays.
