You’ve got me curious…. (even though I’m a vegetarian and wouldn’t eat the ham – lol)
wrote: Have any of you ever made cornbread with stuff added besides what the recipe
I’ve added the obvious things like grated cheese and/or canned chopped green
chilies — and its turned out wonderful. Last week I added a can of corn
(drained) and some chopped green onions — again
with good results.
Right now I’m using up a box of “white” cornmeal. I happen to of added some
flour that was half whole wheat and half regular — cuz I mixed it while
trying to eliminate extra containers on my counter. So the cornbread looks
NOT yellow, but more beigey.
Is beigey even a word? It has no effect on
the taste that I noticed.
So anyways, tonight I thought I’d try something different. Chopped an
onion, added some garlic and a little oil to a pan. Then added some
bitesize ham chunks that were frozen solid in a larger chunk.
After the ham
had thawed, the onions were partially cooked. I mixed in a bag of frozen
corn, partially thawed from sitting on the counter for a few minutes. Then
turned off the burner.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch………. I mixed a double batch of the
cornbread as directed on the box. Also added a tablespoon or two of dry
I divided the meat/onion/corn
mixture from above in half, into two different
9″ by 13″ baking pans. Poured half of the cornbread batter into each pan on
top of the meat/onion/corn mixture. Both pans are now in the oven baking.
Didn’t intend to have two pans full when starting this experiment. However,
it could be considered a complete meal since it has meat, veggie, and bread
all in one. Or even if not, it will be for me!!
Obviously this will last
me 3-4 days. Gotta break out a few of my flat plastic containers with lids
to store the leftovers in.
So anyone want to know how it actually tastes when finished? How it looks?
If it was edible at all?
Ahhh…imagining that irresistible “new car” smell?
