Skillet Cornbread Is Easier Than You Think
We're partnering with our Time Inc. sister brands Cooking Light, Health, My Recipes, Real Simple, Southern Living and Sunset to bring you 60 days of amazing holiday video, with a new theme each week. Up now: Thanksgiving Sides.
Earlier this week, star chefs shared their favorite Thanksgiving sides. One of our top choices: warm skillet corn bread. It's a classic comfort food that doubles as the perfect Thanksgiving side dish. In this clip, our sister brand Southern Living shares how to make easy, superdelicious skillet corn bread that has perfectly dark golden, crispy crust.
As good as fresh-from-the-oven cornbread is, it's even better with butter. Here are five amazing butters to serve with warm skillet corn bread.
1. Maple-Chile Butter
Pure chile powder gives this luscious butter fantastic heat.
2. Molasses Butter
Butter, dark brown sugar and unsulphured molasses are all you need for this rich butter.
3. Three-Herb Butter
Star chef Paul Berglund's simple butter is delicious with pretty much everything. Plus, it stores beautifully, so you can double the recipe to have extra on hand in the fridge.
4. Ginger-Scallion Butter
This whipped butter is terrific on corn bread or other Thanksgiving dishes, like roasted sweet potatoes and winter squash.
5. Orange Maple Butter
Finely grated orange zest gives this maple butter delicious citrus flavor.
