Finally! A corn bread recipe that’s easy and absolutely delicious! I cannot tell you how many times I’ve had corn bread that’s been dry and bland – but I can promise, this is not one of them! With every bite, you can expect bacon bits and jalapenos and corn that are sauteed in brown butter before baking. There’s a lovely balance between sweet and savory with this dish. The sweetness of the cornbread coupled with the smoky and spicy flavors of bacon and jalapeno make this recipe such a fun treat in the summer. So far, I’ve eaten it alone as a quick snack and we’ve also paired this cornbread with a roast beef with stewed veggies – both were delicious! The way that the corn bread soaks up the gravy and adds to the dish is such an explosion of flavor. However you decide to eat this recipe, make sure you drizzle it with butter and honey on top – I promise you won’t regret it!
I cannot begin to exclaim how happy I am that today is Friday! Has anyone been having super busy weeks and just feeling overwhelmed by everything? This recipe was definitely a fun way to hop in my kitchen and turn off all of the outside noise and really enjoy being in my own element – the kitchen. Currently, my kitchen is stocked with so many delicious finds from Balducci’s Food Lovers Market. I love shopping at Balducci’s because they always have such a beautiful selection of foods. I often find food items there that I’m unable to find anywhere else so I it’s always such a treat when I shop there. With this recipe requiring so many fresh ingredients, I knew that Balducci’s was the only place that would be able to provide quality items that would truly help bring out all of the flavors of this dish.
That being said, stay tuned for more recipes from my Balducci’s market haul. I cannot wait to show you wait I’ve got in store!
