I like to cook cornbread in a Cast-Iron Skillet that’s been heated in the oven before the batter is added. Cast iron helps get the exterior golden brown and a little crispy.

  1. Alex would love this take on cornbread (he loves his spicy food). Adding in the cheese and bacon would really take it over the top…like we’d want to eat it every day (which I could actually eat cornbread every day). As we all know, having a heated cast iron skillet is the only way to make cornbread. 😉 Merry Christmas to you and your family!
