    highcotton's Note:

    To my surprise, I just discovered that our favorite broccoli cornbread recipe isn't among the dozens posted on 'zaar. I share it with one warning: It's not a healthy dish to begin with, and this version is more sinful than most. It sure is yummy, though! We particularly enjoy this in the summertime as an accompaniment to a vegetable dinner of turnip greens, black-eyed peas, squash and slices of homegrown tomatoes. Given that menu, the Calorie and Cholesterol Police never even notice. :) The original recipe specifies a 9"x13" baking dish. However, I discovered by accident that it's really best when made in a dish that's 7"x11". If you happen to have that odd size, do use it.

      Excellent! I have made countless pans of broccoli cornbread with cottage cheese, but never ricotta. The difference is discernible, mainly in texture. This was creamier and more custard like. Maybe it was all of that butter. LOL Either way, this is the recipe I'll be using when wanting to impress guests. Served with a crockpot soup. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)
