This is my grandmother's recipe for a very hearty cornbread that is more of a true side dish than just a bread.

Yummy! I wanted this to be an appetizer so I put the recipe into mini muffin pans. It only took about 20 min. to cook this way they were good as the recipe states-but better for our family with green chilis or jalapanos and cheese added. Beautiful appetizer at Thanksgiving! Thanks! Read More

Very good bread--if a little sweet for me. I used half margarine half butter and omitted the salt. I also used a full 12oz package of frozen broccoli. I think it would also be good with some garlic powder for an extra little oomph and to tone down the sweetness. Thanks! Read More

Made this as a side for the "Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf" recipe on this site. Very very good. I took a few liberties with the recipe based on our tastes - I think we might have found it a bit bland otherwise. Adjusted the recipe to make a 9 x 13 casserole and tossed in shredded sharp cheddar garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes. Turned out great! Read More

I wanted to use up cottage cheese so I made this recipe. I even made corn bread mix from scratch. I didn't have any broccoli so I made it with cauliflower. I put red onion in stead of sweet onion and butter (unsalted) in stead of margarine. It browned in less than 40 min in my oven. Tasted great! Read More

Excellent side dish. Very addicting! I use a different recipe same ingredients but mine says to melt the butter in the pan and then add the corn bread/ onion/broccoli mixture without mixing in the butter. Creates a nice crust...so yummy! Read More
