Ingredients

  • 2 pounds cornbread, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces pancetta, cubed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 3 -4 leaves fresh sage, chifonnade
  • 3 eggs
  • 1-3 cup chicken broth (depending on dryness of the bread)
  • 12 tablespoons butter

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350-400 degrees.

Place the cornbread in the oven until slightly toasted. Allow to cool. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the pancetta until slightly browned, but not crispy; remove and drain. Transfer to a bowl.

Add the onion, celery, salt, and pepper and cook over medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes. Remove and allow to cool slightly. Add all dry ingredients to the bowl with the pancetta and toss. Whisk in the eggs and mix carefully; do not allow the cornbread to break apart. Add just enough broth to moisten and place in well-buttered muffin tins. Dollop each muffin with 1 tablespoon of butter.

Cornbread Shopping Tip

Be sure to purchase the correct flour a recipe calls for – flours differ in gluten or protein content, making each suited for specific tasks.

Cornbread Cooking Tip

Insert a toothpick into the center of cakes, bar cookies, and quick breads to test for doneness – it should come out clean or only have a few crumbs clinging to it.
