Cranberry Cornbread Casserole

What could be better on a cold day than a warm casserole and creamy sweet cornbread put together? Since it starts with a mix, this side takes no time to make. Just bake, scoop and eat. Yum!—Valery Anderson, Sterling Heights, Michigan

    Couldn't taste the 1/4 tsp sage this recipe called for and wish I had added more. Recipe was okay, but I need more flavor.

    This was such a strange combination, but I just had to try it. So glad I did, it's really very good. Not a huge sage fan, so upped the orange a little and added a tiny bit of honey. Everyone likes it.

    This was very good but a little on the heavy side.
