Delicious!

I added 2 crushed Habanero peppers to this cornbread, and boy was it ever good! You can leave out the heat of course. Mine was a little darker than usual...some in my house like the cheese nice and crispy on top. Yum!

Enjoy!

How to Make Cheddar Bacon Cornbread

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 450ºF. Coat 8-inch ovenproof skillet with about 1/4 cup oil, or enough keep from sticking.

    Heat skillet for a good 5 - 10 minutes. Oil should be good and hot, so when you add the batter it sizzles.
  • 2Beat egg in medium bowl. Stir in milk, oil and corn meal and spice if using until smooth.
  • 3Batter should be creamy and pourable. If too thick, add 1 or 2 tablespoons more milk. Pour into prepared skillet or pan.

    Sprinkle bacon and cheese evenly over batter. Using a fork, drag in a zig - zag motion throughout the batter, not going through to the bottom of the pan. As you don't want the cheese and bacon on the bottom.
  • 4Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until desired brownness.

    Yummy!
