    LAURIE's Note:

    Got this recipe off another website and originally I made it on the campfire, but dont try it unless you are campfire cooking savvy cause it does get tricky. Best done on a grill and with a cast iron skillet. This is great for breakfast with cheesy eggs, hash browns and a big slab of grilled ham, or with a big bowl of cheesy potato soup for lunch or supper! Any leftovers make a great addition for stuffing too. I have also added any leftover corn to the batter for added flavor.

      Delicious! I just made this to go with a bean soup. I will be keeping this recipe! I did not have sour cream and the cornbread was just fine without it. I substituted 1/8 cup maple syrup for the sugar. I also cooked this (in a cast-iron skillet) in the oven @ 400 for 25 minutes.
