Cornbread mix....

I was pleasantly surprised. This weekend I cooked some of my chili (steak/scotch chili) and jalapeño cornbread for a group I belong to.

I picked up the "add water only" cornbread mix from GFS. I figured it would just be "OK". I added some diced jalapeño peppers and drizzled some honey over the top before I baked it. Wow, terrific corn bread for the price and ease of cooking. Just goes to show, sometimes cheap and easy is the way to go!!!

Thanks, an easy one for me to try.

I have to agree: I think cornbread is one of those things that you can still make great when most of the work is done for you. Personally, I love Jiffy Brand cornbread mix. It's like 35 cents per box and makes a good portion of cornbread, plus it's a simple recipe, and therefore easy to add additional flavors to. I like to add butter and honey, or another of my favorites is herbed cornbread; I think rosemary cornbread works great with a simple roasted chicken or turkey.

I almost always make my cornbread from scratch, but when I'm pressed for time, I use Jiffy mix. It's pretty good and, as college_cook said, quite inexpensive. Sometimes it goes on sale here at 4/$1. Can't beat that.

Marie Callender has a corn bread mix in a cannister, with the jalopy peppers already added.

I've made a lot of Jiffy cornbread in the past and like it a lot. I most often make my own. It's about as easy as it gets.
