In The Kitchen

Kentucky Cornbread


I’m sitting here, the day after Thanksgiving, looking outside to this gloomy weather, and knowing that this is definitely CHILI weather (with it being the day after Turkey day, maybe I should be thinking of a light salad and fruit, but….nah).  And let me ask, what better side to go with chili than cornbread?

I promise, this cornbread recipe will satisfy any and all of your cornbread needs!  And to add, this was the one recipe I wrote about back in October that was passed down from my beautiful grandmother years ago.  Today, I am putting it out there to all you beautiful people!

Not only is this recipe wonderful, but it is super simple.  Look at this thing; weathered and battered and almost unreadable! I’ve read it so many times though that I am really close to having it memorized.  Only a few more times and I think I’ll have it down.

Any recipe that says “mix all the ingredients together” as the first line is a BIG winner to me.  That means that most likely, it will be easy for me to do and to pull off.  Score #1!
First I preheated my oven to 450.  Let that preheat, then mix together 1 and 1/2 cups of self rising cornmeal, 1/2 cup of Wesson oil, 3 eggs, 1 cup of sour cream, 1 small can cream style corn, and 3 or 4 green onions chopped fine (I love green onions, so I used the entire 4).
I used a casserole pan that I use for hot dips and other such things, sprayed it with cooking spray, and poured half the mixture right on in.  After that, sprinkle about 1/4 cup of shredded cheese over the top, pour the rest of the mixture on top of that, then sprinkle another 1/4 cup of shredded cheese on the top.
Boom.  Done.  Just like that!  Score #2! Put it in the oven, wait 30 minutes, and you’ve got delicious cornbread waiting to be put with the perfect main dish.  OR, you can eat it by itself!   I do a little bit of both, and every time it is awesome.


AND…instead of making you try to read the recipe card above (even though I love the old look of the card!), below is a little bit of a more cleaner version.  Score #3!!
Friends, go and make this! You WILL NOT regret it. 🙂
Much love,
