This simple cornbread packs a flavor punch

Print this recipe
Cornbread often plays second fiddle to other dishes, but in the recipe below, it has a flavor all its own, thanks to a savory combination of herbs, garlic, shallot and cheese. You'll bake the cornbread in a preheated cast iron skillet, which has the extra benefit of giving it a super crispy crust that adds texture to this already flavorful recipe.
You can change the herb mix to suit your tastes. Spicy jalapeños, smoky paprika or aromatic tarragon can also join the party or replace some of the players to lend a different flavor profile to the base. Experiment at home to discover your favorite combinations.
