Use oven mitts with a reinforced heat-resistant palm to protect yourself from burning when placing theCast iron skilletin the preheated oven, when you remove it to add the batter and when the cornbread is done.There is plenty of cheese in this version to make it even more flavorful and the collard greensare mild giving it just the right twist to keep things interesting. This traditional Southern cornbread doesn’t contain any sugar and is mostly made of cornmeal, which makes it an amazing side to bacon and sausages. You could serve this with any meal, and a wedge of this cornbread is the time-honored way to soak up tasty juices of collard greens, slow-cooked meat dishes and other soul food. Yummy! Be aware that the baking time may need to be adjusted slightly. While this cornbread is moist, it still needs butter for slathering on each glorious piece so it can melt into each and every nook and cranny. Cornbread itself can be a blank palette and I love experimenting with variations. For this southern cornbread, I like adding a small amount of flour to give it a tender texture. You can bake this smoky bacon cornbread for your breakfast since it is really easy and time-consuming. When the cornbread is baking in the oven, you can prepare other food at least a cup of coffee. I can assure you that you will never regret to make this one pan food!
With my thoughts turning to fall, I’m instantly craving comfort food. Soups, stews and everything else cooked in my oven. Of course, comfort food also includes all carb things. Next time, I would like to share with you another very easy and tasty one pan food. It is SKILLET CREAM CHEESE & CHEDDAR CORNBREAD. This fabulous Cream Cheese & Cheddar Skillet Cornbread definitely fits the bill! Butter, cheddar and cream cheese are swirled together within the batter before being poured into a piping hot Cast iron skillet. This cornbread is heavenly for breakfast with a runny egg sitting on top. It also makes a great vehicle for sandwiches when it is split in two. Hope you like it!
