Old-Fashioned Cornbread Cooked In A Cast Iron Skillet – A Rustic Recipe

5 delicious vintage recipes skillet cornbread

Why is it that we never enjoy Thanksgiving food at any other time of the year?

We only eat stuffing, baked mac and cheese, sweet potato casserole and cornbread on Thanksgiving and the day after (thanks to leftovers) but we do not make the rest of that food at any other time.  I think it is a real shame because I love Thanksgiving food and would really like to enjoy it more throughout the year.  Maybe not a whole Thanksgiving dinner at once, but more of like one side at a time with different meals as I cook throughout the year.  I think it would add variety and fun.

One of my husband’s favorite foods is corn.  I am certain I have mentioned his unsightly obsession with it before.  It is pretty crazy, but it is true.  Since that is the case, I am always looking for a new way to make corn recipes.  I recently came across this recipe for cornbread made in a skillet.

I think it is a cool way to use my skillet (which I absolutely love by the way!) and include his love for corn in one dish.  I must admit, it is pretty yummy, too!




Quick Tip: brush this with butter in the last few minutes of baking to get a nice golden brown.

I make corn muffins when I make a pot of soup(pinto) beans with the same recipe listed, if I am having navy beans, I prefer the corn muffins a little sweeter. Dressing and chicken and dumplings are my FAVORITE part of Thanksgiving dinner. Last fall my daughter prepared the dumplings as a surprise for me while I was at work, she had our family cookbook, and she even called her aunt to make sure she got them just right. What a delightful meal!
