Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and I know we are all dying to tear into those once-a-year favorites: turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes….. mmmm….. I know that many household traditions include cornbread, often in the form of cornbread stuffing. Well it just so happens that I have a killer cornbread recipe with a New England twist that will go perfectly with your Thanksgiving feast. That’s the right, the title says it all: Maple Bacon Cornbread. It’s a winner, and the best part is you get to see how to make it!
The secret ingredient for any cornbread (in my opinion) is cast iron: you need that rocket-hot heavy metal pan to make the golden crust that makes cornbread cornbread. Mmm. And the good news is if you’re not a fan of maple and bacon, or you want to keep it plain so you can stuff your bird with it, then just simply leave out the maple and the bacon. If you want to use this bread for stuffing, you’ll want to make it a day in advance and leave it out on the counter so it gets a bit stale. Stale bread means flavorful stuffing! Yum!
