A true southern staple. Around here, egg bread is a sweet cornbread made with eggs. This is one of my family's favorite meals. I adapted this from the recipe served at Kleeman's, a very popular restaurant in downtown Nashville, TN way back when (now closed). You can make your own egg bread from scratch, but I prefer the convenience of the boxed mix.
