Now I'm not partial to Yankee style cornbread with all that sugar in it, but I ran across a Brown Sugar w/Bacon version the other day. It sounded interesting and it had BACON in it, so it's gotta be good.
It calls for a cast iron skillet, but mine are at home, so a SS one would have to suffice. Bet this would be killer in a Dutch Oven.
Of course what's cornbread with out Fried taters & Onions with Brown Beans? So off to the races we go.
Got some taters and onions going.



The cornbread money shot.



Plated with a bowl o' beans, cottage cheese, homemade okra pickles and the cornbread with honey.



For Yankee style cornbread, it was mighty tasty. Debbie loved it and said it was the best cornbread she had tasted. Give it a try, ya might like it.

Jarhead's Bacon Sweet Cornbread

1/2 pound thick sliced bacon (I cut up the bacon into 1/4" pieces before frying)

Dry Ingredients
1-3/4 Cups AP Flour
1/4 tsp Baking Soda
1-1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder
1 Cup Yellow Corn Meal
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar or more to taste
Pinch of Salt
Chopped pickled jalapeƱos or green chiles (optional)

Wet Ingredients
3 Large Eggs
1 tsp Molasses (1 Tbsp)
2 Cups Milk (1-3/4)

2 Tbsp Butter

In a 12" Cast Iron pan, fry bacon and reserve the fat.
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.
In a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients. Mix well.
Slowly add dry mix to wet mix. Stirring well.
You want a consistency of pancake batter. Add flour/corn meal or milk to adjust.
Add the 2 Tbsp butter to the bacon fat and melt.
Coarse chop bacon. You don't want little pieces.
Pour mix into hot fat.
Add bacon and stir to distribute.
Bake at 375 degrees 35-37 min or until a toothpick comes out clean.
Allow to rest, uncovered for 30 minutes before slicing.
Serve with butter and honey.

The original recipe called for 1/4 cup of white sugar too. I left that out on my version and added some chopped up Jalapenos. (Habaneros would be even better) Not too many cause Debbie don't like heat. I chopped em fine enough that she couldn't see them. Twisted Evil
Thanks for lookin'. Now if that ain't country, I kiss your @$$. Laughing

Edit: The ingredients in () are for next trial run.

Also try maple syrup cornbread. People love it. Just reduce other liquids a little and bake at 25F cooler.
