Sometimes a little corn bread is all you need to make a dish complete and to impress your man. Plus, when you get takeout, there aren’t too many places that offer it as a side anymore. You really don’t have to have a bag of cornmeal, flour, and a cast iron pan to make corn bread anymore.
You’ve probably seen these little boxes of corn muffin mix at the grocery store and walked right past them on your way to the tubs of cake frosting. They’re less than $1 and are the best things to have around to pretend like you’re a regular cook. This brand, Jiffy, has been around for more than 100 years (I’m not exaggerating) and they have everything from pizza crust mixes to pancake mixes.
- 1 Box Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
- 1/2 Can Creamed Corn
- 1/2 Can Green Chili’s
- 1/4 Cup Half & Half/Cream/Milk
- 1/2 Cup Grated Cheddar Cheese*
Pre-heat oven to 400° and grease an 8″x8″ pan.
Mix all ingredients, except cheese, together in a medium sized bowl. Make sure that you mix everything thoroughly.
Pour the ingredients into your greased pan and spread batter out evenly. Sprinkle with Cheddar Cheese (*Cheddar Cheese is optional).
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Edges will turn golden brown and a toothpick, inserted in the middle, will come out clean.
