I decided to use this mix to create a flavorful cornbread to serve with red beans and rice with sausage for a quick dinner earlier this week. Because my cornbread has so many different layers of flavor, I decided to call it Super Deluxe Cornbread. When you look at the recipe see all the fun stuff I added to it, you'll know see why "super deluxe" was the only name that did this cornbread justice.

Step 2: Add the following ingredients to a large measuring cup: 1 1/4 cups milk, one large egg, and 1/4 cup melted butter; whisk until combined. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients and stir just until everything is combined. Spray the reserved pan with non-stick spray and evenly spread the cornbread mix in the pan.
Step 3: Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the cornbread is golden-brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove the cornbread from the pan using the foil or parchment as a sling. Cool completely, then cut into squares to serve with plenty of butter.
This cornbread was so good! It was moist and sweet...and the fresh corn kernels brought a nice freshness. The bacon brought a nice smokiness, and the green onions provided color and a light onion flavor. The ranch seasoning was present in each bite, but it didn't overwhelm any of the other flavors...it was a last-minute addition, but I really liked it!
This recipe would also make really great corn muffins, and leftovers will freeze well if wrapped tightly and placed in a freezer bag. I served this cornbread for dinner, but it would also be great as part of a Sunday Brunch with hash browns, eggs, and sausage or bacon. My Texas readers can find this Central Market Honey Cornbread mix in the baking aisle at their local HEB or Central Market grocery stores.
