Southwest Spoon Bread

Spoon Bread is a great old southern bread that is often times used as a dessert or a starch side dish. I love a spoon bread it is crisp on top with a nice soft inside. When I decided to develop this Southwest Spoon Bread I wanted it to be full of flavor but maintain that same crisp with a soft inside. I believe my goal was reached. I hope you enjoy it.
Southwest Spoon Bread

The Recipe
Onions, Garlic, Pepper Jack Cheese, Longhorn Cheese

  12. That recipe looks like a keeper to me! I love anything that even resembles corn bread. Have you ever had corn bread salad? I've been a fan ever since I had it at a church lunch.
