Chipotle Bacon Cornbread

Serves 6 as Side.

This started out as just a scaled down version of Rachel Perlow's Skillet Cornbread With Bacon. I made a few changes along the way and the results are significantly different, hence the new recipe. This is for an 8 inch skillet. You could get away with using a 9 inch, but the bread will be thinner.

Note: This is VERY spicy. If you can't handle the heat, seed the peppers.

  • 5 slices cooked bacon, chopped
  • 3 chipotle peppers, chopped – seed for mild
  • 3 T butter
  • 2/3 c yellow cornmeal
  • 2/3 c flour
  • 1/2 tsp tsp baking soda
  • 1-1/4 tsp tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1-1/2 T sugar
  • 1 c buttermilk
  • 1 egg

Mix peppers and bacon. Set aside. Put butter in 8 inch cast iron skillet and set skillet in oven. Preheat oven to 350. While oven is preheating and butter is melting, mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, mix buttermilk and eggs. Gently add buttermilk and egg mixture to dry ingredients. Stir only until moist. Batter will be lumpy. Stir in bacon and chipotle mixture. Remove hot skillet of melted butter from oven. Pour cornbread batter into hot butter. Bake for 20 minutes.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      Hi, has anyone got a nice recipe for mango jelly using tinned mango puree (850g) and agar-agar powder (and possibly mango juice drink)?

      made a tapenade using the usual garlic / olives / olive oil / lemon juice recipe - with kalamata olives.
      I have anchovy (tinned and paste) on standby . . . we both like anchovy....
       
      now,,, I like kalamata olives - especially in a salad that involves feta....
      however, DW is underwhelmed and suggests 'it is just too strong'
       
      we don't have a large selection of olives at the market - other than the usual green/black/with without stuffings...
      Castelvetrano
      the store has an olive bar - but the descriptions are strictly marketing BS - not specific olive types.  lots of 'mixtures'
       
      the Castelvetrano press is pretty good - any experiences on toning down from kalamata welcomed.
      other tips.... i.e. 50-50 Kalamata & black/green, etc.
       
      we do Amazon, so we should be able to get any type . . .

      Also:

      - Roll the dough into a rectangle, dusting as needed.
      - Scatter the peppers on one half. Scatter the onion and leek on the other.
      - Scatter the cheeses and herbs evenly.
      - Cut into 7 stripes, so that each contains either peppers or onion-leek (it's fine if some get mixed).
      - Roll each stripe into a spiral.
      ---
      - Brush/dip a spiral in the silan (or honey) mixture. Scatter/dip in the sesame.
      - Place in the pan, and repeat. You should have one in the middle, surrounded by the rest.
      - Cover with remaining silan and sesame.

      - To serve, bake again for ~10-15 minutes until hot and crisp (or more if needed, e.g. if it was cooled for longer).
