Broccoli and Cheese CornBread

Saturday, March 17, 2018
If you want a bread to serve with chili, stew or soup, make this broccoli and cheese cornbread. It's addicting. It's one of the most delicious breads I have ever made. Gooey cheese stuffed inside cornbread with broccoli. I made this for a family dinner and they couldn't stop eating it.

Delicious with any meal.

What a perfect comfort bread. This broccoli cheese bread compliments so many meals. We had a big pot of chili going on a cold evening and I made this to go along with it. I actually used both shredded provolone and cheddar together in my cornbread which was over the top delicious!

If you are considering any big pot of comfort food, this is the savory quick bread to make. Of course if you're not a broccoli fan you can substitute any other vegetables to use. I have also tried this recipe with blotted dry tiny chopped yellow squash and cooked cauliflower.

When you use a different vegetable think about what pairs well with the cheese and garlic flavor. Chilies and bell peppers chopped go great in this bread. Also other suggestions are green and black chopped olives.

Great to take a long picnics and more!

This broccoli cornbread with cheese is actually great served cold and perfect for traveling. There are times when we go to outdoor picnics and I want something hearty to go along with those picnic meats and side dishes. This goes with any kinds of meals from stews and on to just snacking on.

The broccoli and cheese compliment each other in this bread and makes it super special. I love making a big pot of chili to go along with it. The chili can even be used to top hot dogs. I bring this to work many times and the associates would love it. The perfect solution for feeding a crowd.

I also love this bread with any Mexican style dish. This broccoli and cheese cornbread taste great with my easy taco soup.
