Mom's Meaty Cornbread Skillet & A Virtual Potluck

Martha White cornbread with ground beef or sausage, corn, vegetables, and cheese make up this filling skillet meal.

Happy Thursday everyone! It's that time of year again for all things cornbread and cast iron! Why cornbread you ask? Well April is when the 19th Annual National Cornbread Festival takes place in South Pittsburg, Tennessee! This year the cornbread festival will be on April 25th - 26th! I was invited to be a judge for the cook off competition, but my schedule got the best of me. It saddens me that I have to miss this huge event, but there's always next year.

The 2015 National Cornbread Cook Off  will be a bit different for this years competition. Ten of their First Place Winners from past years will be returning to the cornbread festival to defend their title, prepare their winning recipe, and take part in an All-Star-Cook Off! Here's a list of all the previous winners and everyone that will be competing.  I can't wait to see who will be crowned the cornbread winner!  


Today's recipe that I'm sharing is a tasty one. This recipe is one of my absolute favorite recipes that my Mother in law makes. Anytime we visit we can usually count on meatloaf, chicken spaghetti or this Meaty Cornbread Skillet for dinner. 

Moms always makes her cornbread homemade all the way, but sometimes I like substituting with a cornbread mix, especially if I'm in a pinch for time. Martha Whites cornbread mixes taste just like homemade, so no one will ever know not even mom! 

To kick off the Cornbread Festival Martha White® is hosting a Virtual Cornbread Potluck along with myself and a few of my favorite blogs. We were asked to bring our best ever cornbread recipe that utilizes Martha Whites Cornbread MixesMy Moms Meaty Cornbread Skillet is the recipe that came to mind as well as the one that I'm contributing.  

So everyone pull up a chair, find a place at the table and enjoy the potluck! Below is a list of bloggers who are participating in the 2015 Virtual Cornbread Potluck and their recipes. Please take a moment and stop by each of their sites and check out their cornbread creations. Before I forget there just might be a little giveaway at the end of this post!


Lets get started with the step by step directions on how to make this meaty cornbread skillet.

In a large skillet brown the ground beef or breakfast sausage, onion, garlic, and diced jalapeno peppers. Drain off any excess grease from skillet. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. In a large bowl mix the corn bread mix according to package instructions (substituting buttermilk for milk and adding the beaten eggs). Add the cream corn and one cup of shredded cheese. Mix to combine and set aside. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add one tablespoon of bacon grease to a large cast iron skillet (mine measures 11 inches). Place the skillet into the hot oven until the bacon grease melts and the skillet is nice and hot. Remove skillet and sprinkle enough corn meal to lightly cover the bottom of the skillet (this gives the cornbread a crispy bottom). You know it's hot enough when the corn meal sizzles. 

Pour half of the cornbread batter into the pan. Add the meat mixture and the remaining 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese. Pour the remaining cornbread batter over the meat. Place the skillet in a 350 degree oven and bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until the cornbread is lightly brown on top and cooked through. Test with a toothpick by inserting into the cornbread if it comes out clean it's done.  

Cool in skillet about 10 - 15 minutes before turning the cornbread onto a serving plate. Slice and enjoy. Serve with a salad to complete the meal.

You are going to think this is funny but it doesn't matter the cornbread is sweet or not. I like it with butter and blackberry jam. More of a dessert

The best cornbread is just plain ole' southern buttermilk cornbread - no sugar allowed and of course, it must be cooked in an iron skillet. Just add butter - yum!!

Judi said... #

i love cornbread cooked in cast iron skillets - hot and buttery - that wonderful crunch from the hot skillet

Mary Ann Gies said... #

I love cornbread either way. Sweet, not sweet. My favorite way to eat leftover cornbread is to put the cornbread in a tall glass, pour milk over it and grab a spoon. My daddy called this "cornbread and sweet milk" as opposed to those who like to pour buttermilk over it. Try it, you'll like it.

annie said... #

I like it sweet, with yellow corn meal, crispy brown on the bottom, with melted butter on top! MMM MMM. It will melt in your mouth, that must be what heaven tastes like here on this side of the Jordan!

I like my cornbread regular with lots of crispy crust and butter.

Margie said... #

I love Mexican cornbread! Lots on cheese, onion, hot peppers, and cream corn. Add lots of butter on top after cooking. Yummy!

cheryl said... #

I love my corn bread the good old fashioned southern way, yellow corn meal is a must and buttermilk always! I heat up my cast iron skillet (with bacon grease in it or course!) in a 425 oven for about 20 minutes and then I pour my cornbread mixture into that hot sizziling pan that produces the most wonderful crusty crunch outside and the most moist wonderful corn bread inside! Gimme a tub of butter and I am happy!

Nancy Grant said... #

Cornbread is not cornbread unless it is cooked in a. cast iron skillet. It can't be sweet and must have cream corn in it.

JustOneVoice said... #

I like my cornbread sweet. But I did not grow up with a lot of cornbread. I think I would like it many ways.

flutterbybree said... #

I love my cornbread sweet, crispy on the outside and soft inside, homemade always with butter and maple syrup, with chile on the side or with corn in it.

Linda J said... #

I am from the North so I tend to like it sweet but since living in the South for 18 years, I like it southern style too, in a skillet and crusty on the edges, not sweetened.

Growing up in the south, a good skillet baked cornbread, with a plate of fresh veggies and chicken is one of the most comforting traditions I've known. When playing around with different recipes I like adding chopped pecans and bacon pieces.

Tina said... #

I like my cornbread a little on the sweet side and also savory with some "mix ins"!

Benita said... #

I love my plain ole fresh cornbread right out of the skillet and into a bowl of sweet milk!!! yummy!!!!

Jackie Hammond said... #

I love cornbread, just cornbread the sweet is okay but prefer to put honey and lots of butter on mine if I want it sweet.

Kathryn Johnson said... #

Unsweet with lots of REAL butter!

jayne lyons said... #

I grew up eating my Mom's wonderfully delicious plain northern cornbread . We had it with everything. My favorite was the next day with pinto beans, Spring onions and sweet milk. My grandmother, who was from the south and lived next door, made sweet cornbread and I loved it when she made it with white beans served with rice. No matter who baked it, it was always in a well seasoned cast iron skillet. I am very fortunate that I have my grandmother's 80 year old cast iron skillet...the best thing I could ever inherit.

Paula Jones said... #

Love this cornbread! And it's so easy!

SLM said... #

What a yummy recipe! I will certainly being making this one.

I like buttermilk cornbread, but I also make it sweet, or with other ingredients when I get the notion. Bacon cornbread, or made creamed corn.

Ellen said... #

I was raised on cornbread made with no sugar, so when I was grown and tried cornbread with a little bit of sugar in it, I was hooked. I will however eat it either way!

Carmen Sanders said... #

I like just plain ole cornbread. I also love Mexican food and this looks super.

Sharon Davis said... #

Sorry folks but cornbread should not contain sugar! I love cornbread plain or Mexican style! Gotta have cornbread with beans for sure! And a good glass of slightly sweetened tea! Good luck everyone!

Mary said... #

Plain ole cornbread is my choice.

SpinninJenny said... #

I never had sweet cornbread until I started school, and the cooks served it with ham and beans. It was more like a dessert. I now prefer plain salted cornbread, reserving the sweet kind for a treat.

Brenda S Okie in Colorado said... #

I love cornbread!!! I could eat it 3 times a day. I love my cornbread plain, not sweet. Poured into a sizzling Lodge skillet with a bit of bacon grease to make the edges nice and crispy. I like to cut a wedge and sink it into a big bowl of vegetable beef soup or bowl of brown beans. I love it in a glass of milk with salt, pepper, and chopped green onion. I love it made into a corncake with a fried egg on top. I love to make cornbread croutons for a delicious salad. I have tried Mexican cornbread and this meaty cornbread you make. Believe me, I could live on cornbread! Wish I had a piece right now.

Miss Mike said... #

I like sweet cornbread with a nice helping of butter spread on top. Ok...I'm craving a nice warm chunk right now.

Auntiepatch said... #

I'm confused about sweet cornbread or not. I've been eating cornbread for 60+ years and it has a small amount of sugar in it. Does that make it sweet cornbread? If so, I like mine sweet!

Linda --- I like my cornbread plain with buttermilk along with it -- My Mother was from Memphis but I was brought up in New York - So I think our family was the only one that liked it plain.

Debbie said... #

Grew up eating corn bread. I prefer the crispy bottom unsweetened. Remember cutting a piece fresh out of the oven and putting it in a glass of milk. (simple delight!) Cast iron is definitely the way for perfect cornbread. These day hot water cornbread is a favorite for a pot of greens.

Denice523 said... #

Plain or sweet. As a main meal or as a treat. Having cornbread is always a treat. Come stuffing time it's got to be cornmeal bread stuffing! It can be the main star with a glass of milk ,or on the side, or as a dessert. You can't beat it!

I like my cornbread not too sweet, with butter, pinto bean juice on top, in a glass of milk. I've started putting my beef stew on top too. I make a recipe sort of like yours, but I put a can of pintos and some tomatoes mixed in with my hamb. and put my cornbread on top. Yum. I will have to give yours a try. I always cook my cornbread in a cast iron skillet.

Hey, I tweeted this and also need to add that my favorite cornbread is sweet style.

Now, I have to say my favorite way to eat cornbread is warm from the oven, butter and maple syrup. That takes me back to my childhood. Wow.

Of course, I like cornbread with chili on top, or with corn and NM chile-peppers in it, and much more. I have a hankering for some skillet cornbread with Cincinnati-style chili w/ all but the soda crackers on it.

We just finished having your recipe for dinner and it was "delish". I like plain cornbread, Mexican cornbread, cornbread with cheese, corn, hamburger, sausage, most anything added, but NOT sweet cornbread! It does have to be cooked in a "black iron skillet".

Always use Martha White Corn Meal and Martha White self rising flour when making my famous cornbread. I say famous because over the years I have demonstrated and given my secrets to many a cook. Have used the same cast iron skillet. No sugar needed.

I love my cornbread sweet! My favorite way to have it is the following morning in a bowl broken up with milk and more sugar sprinkled on top! Yummy!

I love the idea of using a mix and homemade together for this recipe.I'm going to use spicy pork sausage and serve it with eggs for a brunch. Yum!!

I love cornbread whether it's sweetened or not I'll eat it hot with butter and syrup or as a side dish accompanying beans, cabbage, chili, peas, or greens! Tmporter49@gmail.com

I've heard it said that people in the south like their cornbread unsweetened and that as you move your way up north it gets sweeter until so much sugar has been added that it is "cake".
As a southern girl I prefer sweet cornbread. And a cold glass of milk. ;-)

I like my cornbread plain, with butter, with honey, with syrup, with chili, with split pea soup, with ham hocks and beans, at breakfast time, at night, ... I just love cornbread!

I love my cornbread without the sugar and the best is crackling cornbread cooked in an iron skillet.

I love Jiffy cornbread with butter. My husband like traditional cornbread, he says Jiffy tastes like cake.

I like it a little bit sweet, which my dad would hate. As a child, I NEVER had sweetened corn bread. I first had it in a restaurant and am a convert.

I love cornbread, sweet, spicy or plain with butter. I like to put honey on it for dessert. This recipe sounds very good, plan on trying it.

Do NOT like sweet cornbread! Like it savory.

I grew up on plain cornbread,and I love it,but over the years I've learned to love ALL cornbread. I always cook it in a cast iron skillet. I'm lucky to have my Mother's skillets and I guard them with my life,they are seasoned so well. I barely saved them from the dishwasher once,since then it's hands off for everyone! Lo I would love to win,Lodge is the best cast iron you can buy!

I love cornbread!!! I have my grandmothers iron skillet. We used to hot cornbread with cold buttermilk when I was little. I still eat it whenever I make cornbread for supper,also great with homemade vegetable soup and pinto beans with raw onion

There's no sugar in cornbread. And it must be in a cast iron skillet.
