Bread Muffins & Scones

Easy Cheese Cornbread Wedges

January 25, 2012

A few weeks ago was the big game in college football. A few friends of mine got together to watch it and they were serving chili, so I wanted to bring something (besides drinks & Jell-O shots) that would go with chili. I instantly thought of cornbread. Plus, I was dying to use my new scone and cornbread pan. I needed an easy recipe that I could make the day before and yet still taste good the next night. Easy Cheese Cornbread Wedges did the trick! It couldn’t be easier than doctoring a cornbread mix and the result was fantastic.

So, how’s it taste?

Yes, I know it’s a mix and from scratch would probably be just as easy, but go with it. I thought these cornbread wedges turned out pretty well. I like cornbread both ways, sweet and savory. Since I used a mix as the base, this cornbread was more on the sweet side, so if you aren’t a fan of sweet cornbread, don’t make these. I think they were a tad bit too sweet, but the addition of green onions and cheese helped tone it down. They were moist and I liked the hint of onion in each bite. It worked really well with the chili. I used Kerry Gold’s Kilaree cheese instead of cheddar, so the cheese wasn’t very prominent. I think a sharp cheddar would be excellent and help on the sweetness even more.

I loved using the scone & cornbread pan! It made perfect, individual wedges. If you don’t have this pan, you could make the recipe in a cast iron skillet or try a muffin pan.
