Rich cornbread

So the other day I wanted to cook something brunchy and as usual I started by looking at what I had in my pantry and tried to figure out what I could put together. And I saw some cornbread mix, and I started thinking that I could maybe add something into the mix and make it richer. Then I opened the fridge and I saw bacon and cheese and I thought those flavors would mix well with the cornbread, and they are brunchy flavors too. So a little light bulb went on in my brain and I decided to go for it.

Rich cornbread


  • cornbread dough from mix or homemade
  • 4 slices of bacon
  • 3/4 cups of Emmentaler cheese or something similar that melts well


  1. I prepared the cornbread more or less according to the instructions (I substituted oil with butter and didn't really measure the milk) and then added about 3/4 cup of diced Jarlsberg (is a Scandinavian Emmentaler kind of cheese) to the mixture and 4 slices of cooked bacon drained from its fat and diced. A creamier cheese would work even better and you could add a bit more of both bacon and cheese to make it even richer.
  2. The result is a pretty good version of cornbread, ideal for brunch or breakfast.

    Hi Pola,

    Love the combination of flavors you pulled together here. This is a bread that could be breakfast all by itself. Thanks for including the Jarlsberg!
