Just small changes to an old standard turn this into a stand-out. It's crazy good! Try it with my Boot Stompin' Chili -- a winning combination :)

How to Make Onion Corny-bread


  • 1Peel the onion and cut it in half. Lay the halves on the flat side, and cut thin slices.
  • 2In a small non-stick skillet, saute the onion slices in the butter, over medium-low heat, until caramel brown. Be careful not to scorch them. Set aside to cool.
  • 3In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg, then whisk in the milk, and hot sauce.
  • 4Add the creamed corn, and stir in the cornbread mix.
  • 5Pour the batter into an 8" square baking dish that has been prepared with food release spray. Set aside.
  • 6Put the cooled onions into the empty mixing bowl. Add the sour cream, salt, dill weed, and half the shredded cheese. Stir gently to combine.
  • 7Spread the sour cream mixture over the top of the cornbread batter. Then sprinkle on the remaining cheese.
  • 8Bake 25-30 minutes at 425*.
  • 9NOTES: I typically make my own cornbread rather than use a mix, and double the other ingredients, but a Jiffy Corn Muffin mix is just the right size for this recipe.

    I think the flavors are better using sharper cheddar, but medium works well, too.

    This recipe is easily made gluten free, by using gluten free flour, or a gluten free cornbread mix.

    I've also made this dairy-free by using substitutes for the milk, sour cream, and cheese.
