Try cornbread with cream of broccoli soup or even tortilla soup. It's delicious! I add a bit of extra creamed corn and heavy cream into my cornbread recipe to make it extra creamy. Cheddar and jalapeños in cornbread are also great.

I love cornbread for breakfast with honey butter, scrambled eggs, and ham, bacon, or sausages. My friend pours white gravy over slices of cornbread for breakfast (something like gravy and biscuits). Put chunks of cornbread in a bowl and pour over a little cream, milk or buttermilk -- much better than breakfast cereal! Oh, yes, cornbread (especially a day old or older) makes a great bread pudding!! YUMMERS!!!!!!

I serve cornbread with many things. However, my Southern heritage forbids the addition of sugar to it like many modern day recipes. Without that sugar I add many savory items like jalapeno, corn, cheese, etc.

Noooo sugar here, either, BJ. Having Southern parents, we had cornbread 5x a week. It didn't matter what was being served.

I don't know where you hail from but in the south, there's nothing to beat cornbread (where the batter is poured into a hot, greased, sizzling iron skillet so that it bakes crispy on the outside) and then served with grilled pork sausage (these days I use turkey sausage to be on the healthy side), smoked pinto beans, and coleslaw. Of course all of this can be scaled down calorie wise (fat-free mayo for the coleslaw, etc.) Man, I'm salivating as I write this.(:
