I’ve share in the past about my love for cornbread. Whether it is the classic skillet cornbread, or a main dish cornbread casserole…I love cornbread, and decided it was time to share this version.

This cornbread is a bit more substantial than my classic skillet cornbread. It makes a bit more (I use a 10 inch cast iron skillet to bake it in) and it is loaded with shredded cheese, onion, jalapeno pepper and seasonings.

I can seriously just make a pan of this and eat it for a meal. You can see me making this recipe in this video on my YouTube channel: Good News and Cornbread.
