    My husband said this is some of the best corn bread he's had! I did use the cast iron skillet but made a few modifications. I used fresh spinach that was on the verge of foing bad. I didn't have eggs so I subbed with 4 individual servings of natural apple sauce. For the cottage cheese I subbed with left over 4-6 ounces of ricotta cheese. I also used green onions. For a little extra oomph I stirred in pepper jack cheese cubes, yum, they added the right amount of heat. I served white chicken chili on top. So delicous! Great recipe.

    Love it, I cut the onions back to 1/2 cup diced finely. About the 3rd time I made it I added some feta cheese, awesome!

    I liked this a lot, though it does turn out sweeter than I'd prefer, which I believe is 100% a result of the Jiffy mix. If I were to make again, I would use a Jiffy copycat recipe and reduce/remove the sugar to make this more savory. It's also somewhere between a cornbread and a cornmeal quiche due to the amount of eggs and cheese in it. (However, I wholly recommend mixing in some extra cheddar and maybe even some bacon. And garlic - always garlic.)

    I took the advise of one of the reviewers and added feta cheese. It was a hit at a recent chili cookoff. will definately make again as our family transitions to healthier choices. It was tasty!

    Very good recipe, very dense and moist. Used fresh spinach, served the squares topped with chili.

    Added 3-4 cloves garlic, finely diced/pressed. Sauteed the onions and garlic. Used chopped fresh spinach and sauteed it until limp. Used butter instead of margarine. Used a Jiffy mix copycat recipe. (Were I to do so again, I would either reduce or cut the sugar entirely. This is a little sweeter than it should be.) Sprinkled the top with shredded sharp cheddar during the last 15 minutes.

    Delicious! I don't have a cast iron skillet so I used a metal 9x9 pan. The only changes I made were to use green onion and butter in place of the onion and margarine. Served with Recipe #111570. Thanks so much for sharing your family recipe!
