This Loaded Cornbread is next level delicious!! Cornbread loaded with cheddar, bacon, creamed corn, and green chiles. OMG! YUM! I could have made a meal out of this yummy cornbread.
Now, there are two camps of cornbread – sugar and no sugar. We are firmly in the no-sugar cornbread camp. I’ve eaten sweet cornbread and it is fine. It’s just not what I make at home. I’m usually serving the cornbread as a savory side dish, and I prefer it not to be sweet.
I like to use White Lily Self-Rising Buttermilk White Cornbread Mix in my cornbread. I linked to it in the recipe below. I find it at Publix, Target and Walmart. If you can’t find White Lily, any self-rising cornmeal/cornbread mix will work just fine. White or yellow – either is also fine. It is just personal preference.
2 cups self-rising cornmeal
1 cup flour
2-½ to 3 cups buttermilk (approximately)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- ½ cup cooked, chopped bacon
- 1 (4-oz) can green chiles, undrained
- 1 (14.75-oz) can creamed corn
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
Pour oil into 12-inch cast iron skillet. Place skillet in oven. Heat oven to 425ºF with skillet inside.
Combine remaining ingredients. Batter should be the consistency of waffle batter.
Once the oven is preheated, remove skillet and pour in the batter.
- Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown.

Can I leave out the cheese
Do you think I could add in jalepenos? I want it a bit hotter.
Absolutely! Sounds great
what it I don't have a cast iron skillet?
It fine what even you have. Just make sure container big enough to hold all the cornmeal mix. Grease it also before pouring mix in.
Is the cornbread on the dry side? Is it moist?
I didn't think it was dry
Just add sugar to to your taste.
Since we are in the "sweet" corn bread camp :), how do I need to tweak this recipe?
You will just have to play around with the recipe.
Can you leave out the corn or use something different I don’t do well with corn
