Corn Bread from Simply Recipes

Perfect with chili. The recipe calls for the corn bread to be baked in the oven in a cast iron skillet. We serve the corn bread at the table directly from the skillet, the benefit being that because the cast iron holds its heat so well, the corn bread stays warm throughout the entire meal.

  • 1 cup self-rising cornmeal*
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 T bacon drippings (warmed to liquid) or 2 1/4 T olive oil

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. Combine cornmeal, soda and salt. Add remaining ingredients, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
    3. Spoon into a greased 10-inch cast-iron skillet. Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 8 servings.
