During the fall, I am always making cornbread. It never fails I just start craving it around the time the air begins to get cooler. I guess for me I associate cornbread with soup, so I typically serve it around the time I begin making soups.
Did you know cornbread is made in all different variations? I grew up with sweet cornbread and my husband prefers unsweet cornbread. That makes for a nice time trying to get a common ground. I found a few recipes though that work perfectly for our family that I am going to share with you today.
6 Delicious New Ways to Look at Cornbread
Corn Dog Muffins - This first recipe is one that I have made for my toddler essentially it’s hot dogs hidden in a corn muffin. Although it can get very messy to eat, it is one of the few ways my son will eat meat.
Favorite Cornbread – So far this is my favorite cornbread recipes it has a subtle sweetness without being overly sweet. This has become the common ground between my husband and I.
Cornbread Stuffing – With the holidays upon us, cornbread stuffing is a great way to utilize cornbread. This is a tasty alternative to a traditional cornbread recipe.
Sweet Double Jiffy Cornbread – I grew up on Jiffy, that is why I love sweet cornbread! This recipe gives a bit of a twist on the Jiffy favorite and it can be made on a budget.
Cornbread Beans and Pie - This dish is one of my husband’s favorites. It’s a perfect cowboy style dish, that involves beans and meat piled high with cornbread.
Skillet Cornbread – Lastly, I wanted to share this skillet cornbread that uses a cast iron skillet. This is the perfect way to make cornbread with less mess, make it in the skillet and put it in the oven, then serve.
How do you eat cornbread? Do you prefer sweet? Unsweet?
