Sweet and Spicy Cornbread Casserole


Last year we were going to a new house for Thanksgiving dinner, with family I had just met a few months before. When they invited us I asked what I could bring. She responded with “the cornbread casserole,” like it was nothing… I had never heard of it!! I didn’t tell her that, I just responded, sure.  Then Googled it as soon as she left. I couldn’t find one that I loved so I took a little of this and that and created my own version. A Sweet and Spicy CornBread Casserole.Mix up a classic and make this sweet and spicy cornbread casserole for your next meal. Make it as a Thanksgiving side dish or take it to your next BBQ!

 

***After making this dish time and time again, I decided to come back and jazz up the pictures a bit!! There will be a few little side notes that I will be adding as well.

What you need for your Sweet and Spicy Cornbread Casserole:

  • 1- 15oz CornBread Mix
  • 1- Can Cream Style Sweet Corn
  • 1- Can Sweet Corn (drained)
  • 1/2 cup Sour Cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese (I used white cheddar)
  • 1- egg
  • 1/8 cup Honey
  • 1- diced Jalapeno

How to make your Sweet and Spicy Cornbread Casserole:

Mix together your cornbread mix, creamed corn, sweet corn (reminder drained), sour cream, cheddar cheese, & egg.

Lightly hand mix ingredients together until wet.

Next, add in your honey

& jalapeno

While slicing Jalapenos use the produce bag to hold the pepper. The oils won’t get on your skin, no accidental burning of your eyes.

*** When making for your family pour mix into the pan before adding the jalapenos. This way you can fold them into half or a quarter of the casserole unless everyone likes it spicy!
Pour into a 9×13 greased pan. (I recommend organic coconut oil)
 ***I was lucky enough to get a nice cast iron skillet for my birthday. You can use that as well!
 

 Bake at 350-degree oven for 45mins to an hour. Take out when it’s golden brown.
