Let's talk Jiffy. Yes. I said Jiffy. Sometimes, you just need a touch of sweet. Even if it comes in a box. From, gasp, Michigan.

So you find yourself with some leftover pretty spicy and very savory chili.

Here's the cook thread for that...

What to do? Make a freaking casserole. What to use for the topping...http://i1041.photobucket.com/albums/b414/redhot696/Guerry%20TD/Jiffy_zpse3kxxacz.jpg

Just add Ray Bans and anything is cool...


Slice up three large carrots and saute those in butter with a dash of cinnamon and brown sugar...

Assemble your hot dish...

Yes, canned...

Mix the two boxes of Jiffy. But, use an extra egg, and evaporated milk with only a couple TBS water instead of regular milk, and a squeeze of raw unfiltered local honey.

Drizzle some more honey on top.

Bake til done (There was a lot of cold thermal mass so it takes longer than the directions, plus I was cooking at 375, not 400)...

http://i1041.photobucket.com/albums/b414/redhot696/Guerry%20TD/pie6_zps3hi6fcdo.jpg

I wanted to crunch up the top a little so I covered it with a small cookie sheet and cranked it up to 400 for a little while longer. Cooled, sliced and served.

The sweet corn cake topping complimented the dish very well, as intended. Got no complaints. I'll be doing this again.

It doesn't have to always be southern and home made to be good. I'd hit that in a heartbeat. Even with a natty lite in the other hand. Now then!:wink:

No problems here.:clap2:




As a matter of fact I have been known to use that very same corn muffin mix in my no beans chili or my homemade soup as a thickener. Just a touch makes all the difference.

We buy that mix by the case to eat with fish and use with chili.

Just as God has a plan for all of His children, so is there a purpose for all ingredients in the astute chef's kitchen...even Jiffy mix!!

Seriously, DG, that looks amazing! Betcha it'd taste great around the campfire with a cold beer in the other hand! :grin:

It really is a great box mix. I haven't used it in years, but it really does have a place in the pantry. I think I'm going to make some a little thicker and use it for corn dogs too.

When I make it from scratch, everyone just slathers it with honey or syrup anyways. They eat the Jiffy mix plain.

The dish looks great and I'll admit to using Jiffy in a pinch, but it still doesn't get you slack cut for using it. :mrgreen:

Quite the concoction. Looks like a week's worth of lunch delight.

Looking good!

We really like Trader Joe's Corn Bread mix. You should try some if you can get it.

Nice, always good to get rid of leftovers. That would have become chili dogs or frito pie at my house. Creative, and it looks delicious.

I have no concerns with the Jiffy, I do have to question that combination of roasted carrots and canned green beans? My brain can not make that connection.

I should have mentioned in my last post we make almost the exact same dish with just chili and corn and onion minus those orange and green things

It actually works quite well as a transition from savory to sweet. Granted, I should have blanched some fresh beans instead, but I didn't see any that I liked at the store.

I live in Minnesota and you'll never find a hot dish in my house. Sweet and heat can be great together though. I'll leave the hot dish making to someone else though. Another interesting way to use leftovers though.

As AlwaysSmokey said though, that'd end up on weiners or in Frito pie at my house too.

Yendor, that's the first thing i thought. Minnesota hot dish with a Memphis twist.

Guerry, very creative and i'd definitely try it.

Looks good but what's up with the carrots and green beans? Trying to make it healthy?

Cornbread can be made without Jiffy? :shock:
