Do you call it hot dish or casserole? I think we all can agree that dependable recipes are really comfort food at its very best.  Here is a cozy take on a humble dish for supper tonight.


1 1/2
lb pork shoulder, cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces
bag (12 oz) frozen chopped onions
1 1/2
teaspoons seasoned salt
cup milk
boxes (8 1/2 oz each) corn muffin mix
cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (8 oz)


  • 1
    Spray 5-quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. Mix pork, onions and seasoned salt in slow cooker. Toss to coat. Spread a single layer of pork mixture in bottom of cooker, then stack pork up around side of cooker.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat eggs and milk with whisk. Stir in corn muffin mixes, then cheese. Pour mixture in a mound over center of pork mixture, leaving 2-inch border around edge of cooker. The pork around the side will prevent corn muffin edges from burning.

    Cover and cook on Low heat setting 7 to 8 hours or until edges of corn muffin mixture are browned but not burned.
