cornbread 016

No fancy ingredients here just plain ole good southern cornbread. If you’re looking for a really good cornbread recipe, don’t overlook this one. I’m getting ready for Thanksgiving and just made this skillet of cornbread for my dressing. For the best dressing use two-day old bread. You may also like my Crock pot Dressing.
