Bacon cornbread with bacon and bacon fried BBQ corn

Man, it's good.


Start by frying 2 rashers of bacon in a cast iron skillet.  Reserve the bacon.  Pour your favorite cornbread batter into the hot fat.  Chop the bacon into bacon bits and sprinkle over the top.  Bake at 400 ° for 15-18 minutes.

If you use fake "bacon bits" from a jar that you bought at the grocery store, I will personally come to your house to kick your butt.


Just fry it up.  More, of course - however much you want.  You'll need a different skillet for this.  Reserve and drain on paper towels when you're done.  Do NOT throw away the fat.

Bacon-fried BBQ Corn:

Thaw frozen corn kernels.  Drop into hot bacon fat.  Dust to taste with BBQ rub - I like Rudy's Rub, which has a little kick to it.  Fry it up.

I still have half the cornbread.  No, it wasn't low fat.  Sure was good, though.

My arteries are screaming at the sight of this, but oh YUM!

Belle, I had it with some brie cheese (left over from when the Mrs. was visiting) for lunch.

If my blog goes silent, it's because I keeled over.

But it was worth it. ;-)

Pan fried cornbread?

T-Bolt, you pour the batter into the hot skillet, but then you bake it. I expect that if you fried it, you could pretty easily burn the bottom.

You better hide from my wife...she isn't going to happy Sunday when I whip both of these up...but she'll be sure to eat it before coming to lecture you, so she should be sluggish.
