Sides are an essential part of making a meal, it helps pull together an entree by boosting the flavor. In Southern cooking, you’ll find that the most essential part to the meat, mac n cheese and greens is a moist side of corn bread.
Corn bread is a common and traditional side that people of all lifestyles seem to enjoy. The sweet and buttery flavoring is what gives corn bread the upper hand in enhancing the meals overall flavor. All of our lives our family has used Jiffy mix, that is until Erica perfected her own recipe. Boxed cornbread no longer exists in our home.
This recipe is not too sweet and not too salty while still maintaining the proper amount of moisture. Mix all of these things together and your heart and stomach will sing!
