Cracklin' Bread (a variation on the classic)


It's cornbread with breakfast meat and cheese in it!

1 box of corn muffin mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup milk
a breakfast meat (sausage, bacon, ham, scrapple, whichever you prefer)
a handful of grated cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a cast iron skillet, fry your breakfast meat. In a separate bowl, combine the corn muffin mix and the rest of the ingredients and whisk together. When the meat is cooked, add it to the bowl with the corn muffin batter. Then pour everything back into the skillet (don't clean it) and stick it in the oven for twenty minutes or until the top is golden brown. Slice into wedges and have it for breakfast with your coffee. 

This bread is fun because you can add  pretty much anything to it that you would put in an omelette. (The bread pictured above has sausage and sauteed onions in it.) Sometimes we'll add bacon and sausage and shredded smoked gouda to it. It's excellent!
