You know I posted a recipe just the other day for some very special cornbread, my Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread. And declared (oh but I do declare a lot of things, just because this is my site, lol) that being a Northerner, I like my cornbread light & fluffy & moist. That being said, I actually grew up in Iowa and grew up on cornbread just like this Southern Skillet Cornbread.
So how do you all like your cornbread? Me, I’m a Northerner, through and through. I like mine light and fluffy and moist and in this instance, with a bit of a bite from jalapeno. It’s not too much heat, but just enough to make you sit up and take notice.
If you want an incredible, moist, fluffy cornbread, you’ve got to try Famous Dave Anderson’s recipe for his Famous Dave’s Cornbread. He claims it’s even better than his corn muffins that are served at his Famous Dave’s restaurants. I agree!
Spicy Mexica Chorizo tamed with a touch of melty cheese all piled on to the cutest little Polenta squares. That’s my kind of appetizer. Maybe yours, too! And look, there’s red & green for Christmas…
I know I’ve said it before. I don’t really “get” casseroles! Cook a bunch of good food, mix it together and recook it! But even I get how nice it is to pull a pan of hot, bubbly, and cheesy deliciousness out of the oven, plop it on the table and call “Dinner!” And when “Dinner” was this Sloppy Joe Casserole, everyone would come running, especially my son!
