Top Rated Cornbread Recipes

Real Cornbread
This traditional cornbread, which is great for Thanksgiving or any other time of year, is made without flour, isn't sweet, and has a crumbly texture. You can change the adaptable recipe to suit your cornbread preference. For a variation, substitute 1/2 teaspoon baking soda for the baking powder and use buttermilk instead of milk. If you're looking for a more muffin-like texture, substitute flour for half the cornmeal.

Corn Meal
Jiffy mix makes a fair cornbread. It’s not quite as lofty as homemade, you can’t tailor the sweetness, and it does contain partially hydrogenated lard. But the bread tastes fine and it’s marginally cheaper and quicker than homemade. With that said, I’ve been baking my husband’s grandmother’s cornbread recipe for 15 years, and I think of her every time I do it. She was lovely, with a cloud of white hair and the gift of making everyone feel appreciated, from the smallest child to the most shy and awkward adult. She called recipes “rules” and she wrote out this rule for “Aunt Sally’s cornbread” for me in her own hand. Whoever Aunt Sally was, she was definitely a Yankee. This cornbread is sweet. Make it or buy it? Make it.

Vegan Chili and Cornbread Casserole
In the never-ending effort to create good, hearty comfort foods that are vegan, I thought I would combine two of the heartland's most prized recipes: chili and cornbread. I know this sounds entirely not-vegan by nature, but with the help of a standout meat substitute (soy chorizo) and by keeping the cornbread old-fashioned (sans eggs), what we have is a devilish casserole with the capability of making you a local celebrity.

Sausages
This is one of Mark’s favorite stuffings. He loves to make stuffing and is very particular about it — he makes his own cornbread or sourdough bread, makes sure it’s not too sweet, and dries it just right so it doesn’t get mushy. The right Italian sausage is also a must — a little hot sausage with a bit of sweet sausage to balance it out. He only makes it a few times a year and wants it all to himself. Believe us, you’ll find the results are well worth the effort, and we’ve found ourselves on many a night forgoing the silverware and hovering over this dinner, picking at the meat and stuffing until it was all gone. You can substitute sweet and hot turkey sausage for the Italian sausages, if you prefer. Click here to see The Ultimate Thanksgiving Countdown: Getting Saucy.

Bacon Cheddar Cornbread
Cornbread is a Southern staple, but by adding bacon and Cheddar, it is sure to please any crowd. The secret to any good cornbread is fresh cornmeal. You can easily add store-bought cornmeal to this recipe, but the flavor is enhanced dramatically by cornmeal that is fresh and contains no preservatives. Cornmeal retains freshness just like a regular ear of corn, so the longer it's been on the shelf, the less your cornbread will have that distinct flavor. Try a local organic grocer, or for the best quality, try a place like Anson Mills that mills their corn and ships it the same day.
