"I've gotten away from cooking with processed ingredients when I can make it 100% from scratch using real ingredients, so when I found a broccoli cornbread recipe but it used a box of Jiffy cornbread mix...I went looking for a recipe from scratch. And I found it here: mylifeandfamilyfromscratchdotcom/2014/11/broccoli-cornbread I decided to make it a cheesy broccoli cornbread, so tweaked the recipe based on the Jiffy recipes I found. Definitely will be trying this soon."

TwisSis RIP Forever in our Kitchen

10 Stars if I had that option! Made as written yesterday as a taste test w/our dinner meal & the remainder served this morning for a family brunch w/sausages & scrambled eggs. So far I've enjoyed your recipe 3 times: 1st when I found it an easy-fix, 2nd for its taste test & lastly today when it was praised by our family. I used a 9x8 in baking pan & cut 12 portions as expected. Its texture falls between cornbread & quiche, but it shines w/all the flavors present in perfect harmony. This instantly became 1 of my Go-To Favorites. TYSM for sharing this recipe. (Made for Pick Me tag game) :-)
