Spicy Skillet Cornbread

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ellie_

This is the first time I ever made cornbread in a skillet and it is a welcome change from the sweet version and an excellent way to use some fresh sage from the garden. Delicious served with tex-mex dishes or chili. Recipe adapted from The Herb Garden Cookbook.
