This is typically when I would be posting another recipe from Decades of Desserts, but this one is going to be a bit different! I just had to share the Bacon Cornbread that we served with our chili. It is still one of my great great aunt’s recipes, so it comes from many decades ago.
It was actually fun to read the original recipe that says add bacon grease to it, I rarely see many people using bacon grease in their recipes. I know my husband actually likes to because that is how his grandma taught him to do it. This recipe though I just substituted it and used butter.
If you cook with bacon grease by all means, add it!
This was a very simple cornbread recipe that is filled with bacon and taste fabulous. It also calls for green peppers, I decided to skip those since I do not like spicy but they would work perfectly if you like peppers.
What do you enjoy your cornbread with? I love it with chili or with soup, my husband though likes it with a tall glass of milk.
