Texas Toast Cornbread

texas toast cornbread

On a recent trip to Nashville, we ate lunch at Edley's BBQ. Chicken Legs got cornbread as one of his sides. It was delicious. The cornbread wasn't like my usual Southern Cornbread. It was a little sweeter and grilled. I knew I had to try my hand at recreating it.

I adapted my usual cornbread recipe. I made it sweeter and added a can of Mexicorn to the batter. Since I wanted this to be more like Texas Toast, I baked the cornbread in a bread pan and then pan fried each piece before serving. It turned out delicious! Chicken Legs said it was better than Edley's. I think I might have to agree. It was darn good, if I say so myself!

  3. This is a must try for me. Sounds delish.

  4. This recipe is such a good idea. Love the sweet touch. My momma would shake her head "no" to sweet cornbread, but sometimes even she would add a drop of syrup on hers. No sugar in it though. I may have to try this with some soup. We are getting a cold front. It will be down to the low 80's! :-)

  5. Wonderful!! toasted with butter for breakfast. ~ Catherine

  6. Looks wonderful. I've got to give this a try. I love cornbread in any variation.

  7. This sounds so good except for the Mexicorn. I'm not really a fan of corn in my cornbread lol. Could this be made without the Mexicorn without making it overly dry? Could I add more of the wet ingredients so it isn't too dry? What do you think, how could I make this without the Mexicorn? Thank you so much for any help you can give me. Have a great week. Take care & God bless, Patsy ღ(ˆ◡ˆ)ღ
