It's been rainy and cold here which makes me gravitate toward comfort foods to warm our innards. This pie is so delicious. The more you eat the more you want! Easy to assemble and get into the oven. Keeping the recipe in a safe place for making again!

Nothing hits the spot like comfort foods during the fall and winter season. This tasted so delicious! I loved the creamy corn and onion flavors in the meat . Made it call out to me for a second helping!

Total comfort food with such simple ingredients but big on flavor. Love the cream style corn. It mixes so well into the meat and tastes so yummy! I have added this to my rotation at my kids request.

This is such a comfort food, and I love to eat it all winter long. The creamed corn gets down in the meat and makes the best flavor. We love it and my kids request it often!

I have been wanting to make this forever after having it at your house and finally did. It was so delicious auntie, and so easy to make. Ty and I both loved it and will have it again when the weather cools in the fall. It's a great cool weather dish! Update - Make this all the time in the cooler weather. One of my favorite comfort foods. After I made it I couldn't wait to get it in my belly. I finally got some good photos!

I wanted to make this before it got too hot. It is delicious and so easy and quick when you don't want to be in the kitchen all day. It was even better the second day when everything blended together. We will keep this in mind for the cooler weather and we will enjoy it often then.
