Broccoli Cornbread

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by opera_vanderzee

Sort of a bread or vegetable side. Good way to sneak in some veggies! Great for something different! Good to make ahead and refrigerate (for several hours). If you do add 5 minutes to cooking time.

Wow! Tastes so good, and seems like the perfect side dish for picky little eaters (sneak in broccoli, protein, dairy in a delicious package). Saving leftovers for my 21-mo.-old granddaughter to sample. Made for Spring 2014 Pick A Chef.
