recipe one pan chili-cornbread skillet pie


Photo: Karl Gustafson

In One-Pan Wonders, we look for easy and delicious weeknight dinners that can be cooked using a single pan. 

We’re now deep into September: School is back in session, vacations are over, and we’re all trying to get back into that groove that we had down to a science only a few months ago. I have aspirations this fall of trying to get back to the gym once in a while, maybe—dreaming big, here—even adding a yoga class. But like everyone else, I find it difficult to cram everything into a single week, and am desperate for shortcuts where I can find them.

So I have always been intrigued by the notion of the one-pan supper. It has to be easier than any other kind of supper, right? Throw everything into a single pan, and then eventually onto various plates. Dinner is served. So I will be on the lookout for the one-pan supper this particular school year (please, send me your suggestions in the comments below!).

To kick off, I decided to try a one-pan dish I’ve always been intrigued by: the chili-and-cornbread pie, baked right in a cast-iron skillet. What could be easier? As it turns out, quite a few things, but the compactness of chili and cornbread in the same pan was not something I could pass up.

I have honed my chili over many years, finding my secret in adding a bit of crumbled sausage and a variety of spices, including cinnamon. So I made a version of that in the skillet, and then smoothed a cornbread batter on top. This was the tricky part: too much batter and you get cornbread-with-chili instead of the other way around. If you smooth the batter too roughly, the chili pokes through and the whole thing gets rather unsightly. But once it’s assembled, it bakes in a neat 30 minutes, and my one-pan autumn was off to a roaring and extremely comforting start.

Note: If you do not have a husband who loves to collect cast-iron skillets like I have, you can still cook this in a casserole dish. Yes, then it will be a two-pan supper. Upside is, you probably don’t have at least one evening a week wherein my husband enjoys his favorite hobby—seasoning the pans in the oven—which makes our whole house smell like an auto mechanic’s garage.

Chili-Cornbread Skillet Pie

Serves 4 for dinner

Chili

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 link bratwurst-size sausage, removed from casing and crumbled
  • 1 can (15.5 oz.) kidney beans
  • 1 can (15.5 oz.) diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp. chili powder
  • 1 Tbsp. smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp. oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cornbread

  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal, any color
  • 1 Tbsp. baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional: 1 cup cooked corn kernels

In a cast-iron skillet that’s at least 12 inches wide, brown the sausage and beef together with the onions, garlic, and peppers until the meat is brown and the vegetables soft. Then add the tomatoes, beans, and spices. Let the chili simmer and cook down for about 20 minutes.

While the chili cooks, mix together the dry ingredients for the cornbread: flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, mix the milk, eggs, and butter. Then mix the dry and wet ingredients together. Then add the cheddar cheese.

Carefully smooth the cornbread batter in a light layer completely over the chili in the skillet. Then bake the whole thing at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes or until the cornbread is browned. Brush top with melted butter. Cut into wedges and serve.

This is your chance to get All-Clad cookware at crazy low prices

— Our editors review and recommend products to help you buy the stuff you need. If you make a purchase by clicking one of our links, we may earn a small share of the revenue. However, our picks and opinions are independent from USA TODAY’s newsroom and any business incentives.

All-Clad makes some of the highest-quality, longest-lasting cooking products money can buy. However, the typically steep price tag of these products usually deters the average person from buying their own sets. In fact, if it wasn’t for the cost, All-Clad would have earned a higher rank in our list of the best cookware sets of 2018.

If the cost is the only thing stopping you from filling your kitchen with this iconic cooking brand, you have to check out All-Clad’s factory seconds flash sale right now. Now through 11:59 p.m. tonight, you can get “factory seconds” models of All-Clad cookware for up to 80% off. Plus, if you spend $99.99 or more—which frankly isn’t too hard to do)—you can get an extra 10% off.

There’s a large selection, from stainless to nonstick to accessories and more. For example, you can get a usually $115 8-inch D3 Armor fry pan for just $50 (that’s $65 in savings!). You can also find other pots, pans, griddles, knives, bakeware, kitchen accessories, and more with similar discounts. To access these amazing deals, you just need to enter your email, which has the added advantage of ensuring you’ll get a head’s up before the next big sale too.

It’s important to note that because all of these products are factory seconds, they’re not completely perfect—but there’s actually no need for concern. All this means is that these products couldn’t be sold at full price due to minor imperfections like surface scratches and dents, which is going to happen after cooking with them over time anyway and should not affect the integrity of the cookware.

If you want flawless cookware, this might not be the sale for you. But for those of us who can look past a few scratches, you can score some incredible deals on new high-end items to fill your kitchen.

The 5 Best Griddles For An Induction Cooktop

There is a lot to love about induction cooktops — they heat up and cool down faster than electric coils, they’re energy-efficient, and they’re easy to clean. But since induction cooktops rely on a magnetic field to create heat, that means you’re somewhat limited in the types of cookware you can use on your stovetop. For instance, when you’re shopping for the best griddles for induction cooktops you’ll need to buy one that’s made with a magnetic material in order to work with induction heat. Of course, finding a griddle made out a magnetic material isn’t too hard; you have your pick between cast iron, stainless steel, and anodized aluminum options —  there are even ceramic griddles made with stainless steal bases.

But just because all of these materials will work with induction stovetops, doesn’t mean they are all the same. Each of these materials has their own pros and cons. For example, cast iron griddles are generally the most affordable of the three choices, and are great entry-level griddles if you’re just starting out. But, if you plan to cook foods that can cake on to a pan and stay there, a ceramic griddle is the easiest to clean. Meanwhile, experienced cooks may want to invest in a more high-end and dishwasher-safe stainless-steel griddle.

And beyond just materials, you’ll also want to consider size. For example, if you know you’ll be cooking pancakes for the whole family on Sunday morning, a double burner griddle will let you cook twice as much food at a time. And if you’re looking for the best multipurpose tool to save space in your kitchen, consider a dual-purpose combination griddle and grill.

With all of this in mind, here’s an in-depth look at some of the best griddles for induction cooktops that you can buy.

1The Most Affordable: A Cast Iron Griddle Great For Cooking At High Temperatures

Lodge 10.5 Inch Cast Iron Griddle

$15

Amazon

This cast iron griddle is perfect for cooking foods at high temperatures and offers a good value for its affordable price.

If you’re looking for an affordable, entry-level griddle, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better value than this Lodge 10.5-inch cast iron option. While you’ll have to hand-wash it in order to avoid rust, cast iron is generally less expensive than stainless steel and is safer than non-stick for cooking foods like meat, pancakes, or pizzas at high temperatures. (Note: while it’s possible to cook eggs and more delicate foods like crepes in cast iron, it can require scrubbing with a scouring pad to fully clean.) This particular griddle comes pre-seasoned with vegetable oil, which helps make it non-stick without any synthetic coatings. Another thing to consider about this griddle is that cast iron can be heavy to hold, so keep that in mind if you’re the type of cook who enjoys tossing or swirling their pans.

2The Easiest To Hand Wash: A Ceramic Non-Stick Griddle For Cooking Delicate Foods

Ecolution Bliss Ceramic Nonstick Griddle

$27

Amazon

This ceramic griddle is the best choice for cooking eggs and other delicate foods. The non-stick coating makes it easy to clean and is free of lead, Teflon, and PFOA chemicals.

While non-stick griddles are similar to skillets, a square-shaped griddle like this 11-inch Ecolution Bliss ceramic one has the advantage of having a larger surface area than a round skillet of a similar size. The stainless steel base allows this pan to function on an induction cooktop, while the non-stick interior ensures than omelettes, flaky fish, and cheesy foods can easily slide out and onto a plate once you’re done. Please note that this griddle is best used for cooking things at low temperatures, as heating up non-stick material to high temperatures can cause the coating to deteriorate. Hand-washing the griddle and using non-metal utensils will also ensure that this griddle last as long as possible. And for those worried about the chemicals in non-stick coatings, you’ll be happy to know that this product is free of lead as well as Teflon and PFOA.

3The Best Investment: A Stainless Steel Griddle That’s High-Quality Dishwasher-Safe

360 Cookware Stainless Steel Griddle

$149

Amazon

Experienced cooks will appreciate the versatility of this stainless steel griddle. While more of an investment, it’s dishwasher-safe and can be used to perfectly cook any type of food.

Although it’s pricier than the other 11-inch options on this list, this griddle from 360 Cookware may be worth investing in, thanks to the versatile nature and superior thick, three-ply construction. Unlike other induction-friendly materials, you can perfectly prepare nearly anything with a stainless steel griddle, regardless of the temperature needed. It’s also better than its cast-iron counterparts for searing foods and preparing acidic vegetables like tomatoes, since it doesn’t leave behind a metallic taste. Stainless steel is also naturally non-stick if you heat it up beforehand and coat it with a small swirl of oil. (Although oil is not necessarily needed.) Best of all, it’s one of the few griddles on this list that is dishwasher-safe.

4The Largest: An Massive Griddle That’s Perfect For Big Meals

Cuisinart Non-Stick Double Burner Griddle

$75

Amazon

For double the cooking surface, this extra-wide non-stick griddle allows you to prepare twice as much food as a singer burner griddle.

This extra-wide Cuisinart non-stick griddle is 10 by 18 inches, so it will over two burners, enabling you to prepare twice as much food at a time. (This can come in super-handy when you want to efficiently produce stacks of pancakes or cook an entire meal with one pan.) Its stainless-steel construction with a non-stick interior is also dishwasher-safe and easy to clean once you’re done.

5The Best Multitasker: A Dual Purpose Grill Griddle Combo

Lodge Reversible Grill and Griddle Combo

$30

Amazon

This two-in-one cast iron tool features a griddle one on side and a grill on the other, saving you from having to buy each of these products separately.

If storage space is an issue in your kitchen, you may want to consider a two-in-one griddle and grill combo like this Lodge reversible cast iron one. It measures 16.75 inch by 9.5 inch, and its versatile design features a griddle on one side and a grill on the other, giving you the choice of a perfectly smooth or textured cooking surface on two burners. Like other pre-seasoned cast iron griddles, this one must be carefully hand-washed in order to avoid rusting.
