Cheese and Cornbread or Dumplings

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Bergy

This corn bread goes well with chicken dishes or meat. If there are any left overs wrap well and pop into your freezer. I like the touch of jalapenos but that is up to personal taste

Bergy, this cornbread is absolutely YUMMY!!! I luv the addition of cheese and corn kernels, they make the bread extra moist and tasty. As I didnt have a jalapeno in the house and all the shops were closed, I subbed a green bell pepper for it, which was a nice addition (though definitely not spicy lol). THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this lovely recipe with us. We all enjoyed it a lot and will make it again!
