  • 1 package corn muffin mix, plus ingredients to make mix
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat mild Cheddar cheese, divided
  • Nonstick cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400˚. Prepare corn muffin mix batter as directed on package.

Spray an 8-inch square or round pan with non-stick cooking spray. Pour batter into pan. Bake 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Do not remove cornbread from pan.

While cornbread is baking, heat a skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add onions and pepper; sauté until soft. Stir in oregano; set aside.

Sprinkle 1 cup of the cheese over baked bread; top with vegetable mixture and remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. Bake 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted. Cut into 2-inch squares to serve.
