This is from a cookbook called beyond grits and gravy and has some quick meals in it. This one is an all in one meal, the kind we like.
1 lb ground beef
1 large onion chopped
1can tomato soup
2 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 cup whole kernel corn(we used a can)
1/2 chopped bell pepper
we added garlic, 2 carrots and some red pepper flakes as we thought it would give it a little more flavor.
Brown beef and onion, add soup, water, seasonings, corn and bell pepper Mix well let simmer 15 minutes then fill casserole dish 11x7x2

Topping
3/4 cup cornmeal
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1/2 cup milk

Sift together cornmeal.sugar,flour,salt,and baking powder. Stir together with egg and milk. Spread over meat mixture. bake at pre heated oven 350 for 45 minutes.

I like these kind of meals too. But, unfortunately my husband hates casseroles.
