You can omit the jalapeno and or cheese. They have a nice kick to them. I am removing Trans fats from my recipes for better health. This originally had shortening and now replaced with a healthier choice of oil.
The fresh garlic, butter and Provolone make this bread a real test of my self-control--I could make an entire meal out of it. I like to use the sliced cheese, as opposed to shredded, because of the even & full coverage it gives. ;)
I like this cornbread because of its great taste. Moist and so easy to mix up. Also is good hot, warm and cold. I like to add diced red jalapeno or some chipotle seasoning for color. This recipe always turns out good.
I just recently have discovered my love for green chilies. Paired with some cheese or bread or meat...GOOD EATS! I thought this would be a good way to add a little spice to the meal, but not burn up my tongue. This bread makes a great appetizer/snack or addition to a Tex-Mex meal.
Make certain to purchase a very crusty bread loaf to make slicing easier. You can use French or Italian crusty bread but rustic or ciabatta is better! When you taste this cheese bread, I know that you will be making it all the time, so make a double recipe of the cheese mixture excluding the green onion and store one batch in the freezer for up to 2 months (trust me the mixture will be used up long before the 2 months!) when ready to use defrost in the fridge overnight and just add in the finely chopped green onions, this cheese mixture freezes very well!
This is a "Paula Deen" recipe that my brother gave to me. I haven't tried it yet but DH loves pineapple so it probably won't be long before I'm whipping up a batch of these. I think this would be a great dish to make with your children.
