Mom's Broccoli Cornbread

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 45 mins

My mom used to make this all the time. Every time her senior citizens group from the church had a covered dish dinner she got asked to bring this dish. It's a little different from the other broccoli cornbread recipes posted because she used cream cheese instead of cottage cheese.

  • 2 (9 ounce) boxes cornbread mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup margarine, softened

  1. Combine ingredients and pour into a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  2. Bake at 325 for about 45 minutes or until lightly browned on top.

Love this recipe! I added about 1 cup shredded cheese to it also!

This made nice cornbread! I adapted to use things on hand and was pleased with the result. I used one box of Jiffy, 2 eggs, cottage cheese instead of cream cheese, and fresh broccoli. I also threw in a half can of whole kernel corn (drained), a seeded jalapeno, and some diced onion to use up bits and pieces. I made it to serve with Hearty Taco Soup #492705, but enjoyed the leftover cornbread with a salad on another day too. I'll use the recipe again!
