Mom's Buttermilk Cornbread

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Stock Show Mom

I never knew what packaged cornbread was as a child. It's so easy and great to have with dinner or to put in dressing. My dressing gets requested every holiday and it has to have this cornbread in it.

Very good Corn Bread. Having grown up on a farm I learned early on that the one thing that puts a crown on Corn Bread is Bacon. Fry up some bacon till crisp. Crumble it and put it and some bacon grease in the bottom of the skillet instead of EVOO. MMMMMMMMMgood. Now top the corn bread with Apple butter and Pot cheese. Who needs fancy food? God Bless.
