A Few Shortcuts Weekly Recipe: Bacon Cheddar Corn Bread

by Pennie on March 22, 2013

This week’s recipe from Amanda at A Few Short Cuts is: Bacon Cheddar Corn Bread.  As soon as I saw the title, I thought to myself, “why have I never tried something like this before?”.  It would be the most natural progression of corn bread for a southerner to make.

In the old days, way back in dinosaur times, I had bacon many times a week.  Not so much any more since I’ve heard that bacon single-handedly caused the extinction of dinosaurs, the sinking of Atlantis and the fall of the Roman Empire!  Anyway, that’s what bacon haters tell me; I’m not sure I believe them.  So when I do have bacon, I hoard the bacon grease like King Midas hoarded gold.  I have a Pyrex bowl I keep in the freezer.  The level of which goes up or down depending on how much bacon has been recently consumed, or how much I’ve recently cooked with bacon grease.

Point being, I wanted to tried this recipe right away but didn’t have bacon in the house, but did have the rest of the ingredients and my beloved bacon grease!  So I whipped it together sans the crumpled bacon but with the yummy bacon flavor.  (No honey for me, just a couple teaspoons of regular sugar.)  I really don’t know why I haven’t done this before.  It was excellent and gone so fast, it made my head spin!

Each week I will highlight one of Amanda’s fabulous recipes. If you don’t have the ingredients or they’re not on sale near you, you could easily print and save the recipes for later use!

I am not a corn bread fan but I think it will be awesome with bacon and cheddar.

This sounds delicious! I’m going to have to surprise my brother with this one, as he is a major bacon addict and loves cornbread. Thanks for posting Amanda’s recipes, I wouldn’t have found them had you not posted them to your blog :)
