Meet the Cook: This recipe was inspired by my husband's love of corn bread. It's so good, he and folks who dine with us (like our two grown children) eat it plain. We're retired but still "commute" - between our rural home and our fishing camp! -Lois Triplet, Springhill, Louisiana

"Delicious! I like this because it calls for original ingredients, not cornbread muffin mix. My only variation: I used fresh broccoli, (cooked crisp tender, and chopped, 3 cups). It was delicious, I will definitely do it again. Thanks for the recipe!"
