Razorback Corn Bread

Arkansas is called "razorback country", so this recipe seemed appropriate to represent our area! This dish is almost a meal in itself, but I serve it with mashed potatoes, fresh peas or butterbeans and cabbage slaw. I recently took it to our Senior Citizens Club and received lots of compliments and requests for the recipe.

    I used to make this quite often, but now that my boys are grown and gone from home (it was a great favorite of theirs) I have let it slip from my repertoire. I have never tried to freeze it before, but I think I will try.
