Poor man caviar

January 28, 2014

If you’re not in the 1% bracket and can’t afford caviar and toast points, I have a southern replacement. CORN BREAD AND PINTO BEANS! YEE HA! Ok, coming off my carb high… Cornbread has got to be one of the simplest “breads” to make. There’s no rise time involved. A few simple ingredients, a hot pan, a hot oven and 30 minutes later you have a “loaf”. I used Pioneer brand cornmeal. I tried using Bob’s course ground cornmeal, but I could never get it to incorporate the other ingredients in a recipe, so I went with a finer grind of cornmeal. I used the recipe that’s on the cornmeal bag, but unfortunately they don’t have it listed on their website.
