Fabulous Spoon Bread

Sometimes simple dishes are the best. One of my favorite foods during Thanksgiving is my wife’s spoon bread. It is a simple quick recipe made of:

  • 1 Cup of Sour Cream
  • 8 Ounces of Cream Corn
  • 1/2 Cup of Melted Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Large Eggs Slightly Beaten
  • 1 Box of Jiffy Corn Bread Mix
  • 4 Slices of Swiss Cheese

Mix it together except for Swiss. Put it in a bread loaf pan. Bakes at 350 for 35 minutes. Top with slices of Swiss. Back in the oven till top browns (about 10 min) don’t over cook.

This also works great in muffin tins (reduce cooking time by 15min).

Here are some variants I’d recommend depending on your tastes:

  • For slightly sweeter add to the mixture 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg.
  • For slightly spicier add 4 ounces of diced chilies (recommend green but can increase the heat based on your preference in chilies).
  • For a different “bite” change the cheese on top from Swiss, to sharp cheddar or a Gruy√®re

Enjoy but definitely make extra because it will be gone in a flash.
