  • 1/2 cup cornmeal

Brown ground beef and onion until done. Add seasoning, corn, tomato sauce and milk. Simmer about 20 minutes. Slowly stir corn meal into meat mixture. Add olives. Put into casserole and top with cheese. Bake at 325 degrees F for about 40 minutes. You can change this recipe around quite a bit and it will still come out very tasty.
