Contest-Winning Broccoli Corn Bread Recipe

Contest-Winning Broccoli Corn Bread Recipe

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
