Have little ones who won't eat veggies? They won't complain one bit when you bring this cheesy casserole with a corn bread crust to the table. For picky eaters, try using less Cajun seasoning. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 23, 2015

"This reminded me of shepherd's pie - with cornbread and cajun seasoning instead of mashed potatoes...on the bottom. I have to admit the first few bites are...interesting. This was a new concept and took some getting used to. But I still want to make it again! With the cornbread, I thought it might be a rather heavy meal, but was surprised to find that it wasn't. I was very glad that I saw the other reviews saying to leave the liquids in - the recipe certainly needed it. I did not have the right size pan and had to make this with a deep 8x8 pyrex (which fits more than my 9x9 pan. I don't recommend using the 8x8... Things I will change for next time: 1) pre-cook the mixed vegetables. They were not mushy enough. 2) I won't use the standard bag of mixed vegetables (peas, carrots, corn, green beans, lima beans) - the carrots and the lima beans just didn't go with the rest, especially with how hard they were."

"I found this recipe to be rather dry & tasteless. If I decide to make this again I won't drain the tomatoes & will add more spice."

"This was very good and so easy. It is always helpful to read other reviews before making any dish and I took the suggestion of not draining the tomatoes. I think it needed that extra liquid. I was a bit generous with the cajun seasoning as we like things pretty spicy and considered adding a can of green chilies but didn't have any! The corn bread was excellent with the meat mixture! We will definitely make this casserole again!"
