Cornbread is the "bread" of choice in this house. I don't mean to open the "sweet or not door, but, no sugar, no honey, and more cornmeal than flour (if any) and bacon grease for the "oil". It's all yum so anytime cornbread is on the table, it's on my plate.

Try my grandmother's recipe - Mississippi Cornbread
2 cups corn meal

1 cup milk or buttermilk if you prefer

1 egg

preheat oven to 415 fahrenheit, WITH your dry #10 cast iron skillet in the oven. When the oven hits the correct temp drop 2 Tablespoons butter in the skillet, mix your cornbread up quickly, and pour into hot skillet - pay attention and don't let your butter burn!

Cook for 15-20 minutes (depending on your oven). Take out of oven and turn our on paper towels or towel in plate. This takes care of any sweating the bread will do.

Cut a healthy slice, butter it, and YUM YUM! It's great alone or with veggies/soups!

Enjoy :)
