Wondering what makes a cornbread fully loaded? Good thing you have me here to tell you.
I bet you were worried.
For this cornbread recipe to be totally macked out, you will need to add pickled jalapenos, bacon, fresh corn off the cob and two kinds of cornmeal.
Oh, you can grease the pan with bacon fat if you are so inclined. Not a meat-eater? Try substituting grated cheddar for the bacon – it will still be just as rich.
Fully Loaded Cornbread Recipe(12 pieces)
Brown the bacon in a pan and reserve any fat. Chop up ¼ cup of pickled jalapenos and remove corn from the cob. If you aren't big on spice you can reduce down to a few tablespoons or even omit entirely.
Preheat oven to 375F.
Grease an 8x8 baking dish with bacon fat. Stir together melted butter and sugar. In a separate bowl combine salt, cornmeal and flour. Whisk in eggs, then baking soda and buttermilk. Gently fold in dry ingredients followed by jalapenos and corn. Pour into the pan and bake for 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out dry.
