Broccoli Cheese Cornbread

April 18, 2019Teresa

Broccoli Cheese Cornbread is so delicious. This quick and easy cornbread recipe uses two kinds of cheese: cottage cheese and cheddar cheese. It also includes frozen chopped broccoli, a little onion and a couple of boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix. It bakes up into a moist and hearty cornbread that’s terrific with soup, chili or even a pot roast!

Back in early February we hosted our young adult group (college age) for lunch after church. I made up a Gluten Free Pot Roast with all the trimmings. Instead of breadmaker bread, I decided to toss together this easy cornbread. It’s similar to my Broccoli Bread recipe. But it’s made with cheddar cheese in the cornbread batter and also sprinkled on top. It’s a tasty cornbread that’s also easy to make. I had my batch oven ready in 5 minutes.

This is a great recipe to use if you’re trying to use up broccoli from your garden! It’s also a terrific side dish for holidays like Easter, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. I do recommend one thing when making the recipe. So much of the shredded cheese these days has so many preservatives. They also use ingredients to help the cheese not stick together so easily. Unfortunately, that causes the cheese to melt very poorly–if at all. If you have time to grate your own cheddar cheese, that’s a better option. But if you’re like me and don’t usually have time, try to buy the best cheese available. Cheese that actually melts when you heat it!

Broccoli Cheese Cornbread is a great side for any main dish meal. Give it a try the next time you’re looking for a tasty cornbread recipe.

Bake at 350 for 30-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. I had other things in my oven so my cornbread took longer than usual.

    I made cabbage casserole soup tonight and I used this cornbread recipe. Instead of broccoli I steamed about a cup and a half or cabbage I had left over, chopped and used it. The family and friends finished the cornbread in one setting. I told them where I got your recipe then dabbled with the cabbage. I am trying the broccoli cornbread also this week, going to try to make hushpuppies with it for broccoli cheese soup.

      Sounds wonderful, Mac. I never would have thought to add cabbage to cornbread!
