This easy cornbread is made with a corn muffin mix. The addition of Cheddar cheese and bacon give the cornbread extra flavor and texture.
- 1 package corn muffin mix
- 1/2 cup cheddar cheese (sharp, grated)
- 6 slices bacon (crisply cooked and crumbled)
- 1 egg
- 1/3 cup milk (or amount specified for mix used)
Empty corn muffin mix into a medium mixing bowl. Save about 1 tablespoon each of shredded cheese and bacon for topping; stir remaining cheese and bacon into muffin mix.
Stir in egg and milk, following label directions. Pour batter into a greased and floured 8-inch square baking dish.
Bake at 400 F for 15 minutes; sprinkle reserved cheese and bacon over top and bake 10 minutes longer, or until cornbread browned and firm.
