Bacon Corn Bread Recipe

"Central Illinois is one of the major corn and pork producing areas of the country, so why wouldn't this bread be a favorite here? asks Carol Roper of Litchfield, Illinois. She dresses up a basic batter with corn, onion and cheese, then tops it with poppy seeds and bacon.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:9 servings


  • 1 package (8-1/2 ounces) corn bread/muffin mix

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated onion
  • 5 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 teaspoon poppy seeds, optional
