Cornbread... Southern Bacon Cornbread

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Timothy H.

Went to a garage sale and this lady has a great collection of cooking books. So I purchased one called Cooking from the cupboard. Meals in minutes from your cupboard. Couldn't beat the price .50 for a hardback cook book with over 200+ recipes. This recipe is making corn bread from scratch,,,,no Jiffy Mix here!

This is among the top 3 cornbread recipes ever, and I have lived in the southern US all my life! I wasn't exactly sure about the bacon quantity, so I put 1/4 cup of bacon cooked and broken up into small pieces. It was excellent, but I might put more next time. Is there ever too much bacon?? Thank you for sharing this recipe!
