What to serve with cornbread

I have a whole thing of buttermilk left over from a cake I made. I thought I would make corn bread with it(never made it before although I have had it a few times- once at someone's house and a few times at Mesa grill). What do I serve it with? I wanted to do buttermilk fried chicken (never had it but heard good things when I googled buttermilk recipes) to use up the milk but my husband still has a bad association of it being the last meal he ate before he got a stomach virus. Any ideas?

Butter and honey

Tea/coffee
Chicken - Any style
Breakfast - Eggs, meat etc
Actually any meal and serve the cornbread as the bread with the meal.

Sausage and gravy is awesome when served over cornbread.

i'm sorry to do this to you, but is it sweet or savory cornbread?

you might be shot for the wrong answer.

real bbq, lol, more shots fired (fortunately, johnny reb is yellow bellied and poorly armed), works with both.

There are two types? The one I had at Mesa grill had jalapeños in it so savory is the only way I have had it?? But it was also kind of sweet. Hmmmmm. What's the difference exactly? I wanted to make it for dinner today. I am just not sure what to serve with it. In thinking some mort of chicken and white bean chili as people suggested chili

You could always use the extra buttermilk in mashed potatoes (w/ chives), buttermilk pancakes, or Buttermilk (Ranch) dressing.

Or, turn the cornbread into croutons for a Southwestern-like salad, make a Mexican-like Strata, or cornbread pudding.

I don't think I've ever had sweet cornbread. Are we talking some sort of dessert?

The best cornbread I had was in New Mexico. It had chopped green chiles and bits of corn in it. Definitely savory.
