Works For Me: Amazing (and Easy!) Cornbread

WfmwsmallThis is the third recipe I’ve posted in as many weeks, which can only mean one thing:  our world is coming to an end.  And actually, I think I might have posted this one before, but it bears repeating. 

With all the nasty weather around, these are perfect days for curling up with a big bowl of soup (ideas here) and this cornbread.  It’s so absolutely scrumptious that you could just about plop in a scoop of ice cream and call it dessert.  If, you know, ice cream tasted good with corn.

2 pkgs Jiffy cornbread mix
1 med onion, chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 can cream-style corn
1 1/2 cups sour cream
4 eggs, beaten
1/2 can of Rotel, drained (include the whole can, drained, if you like it extra spicy)
1/3 cup vegetable oil

Mix that together until it’s a big gloppy mess.  Pour into a greased 13×9 casserole dish, bake at 350 for 50-55 minutes. Serves 12 or more.

If you’d like to play along with WFMW, check out the guidelines here first.  Then leave your link below!

Oh, and just in case you didn’t see it yesterday, don’t miss the details on the fun Praise Baby promo going on right now!

  1. MomOnTheGo says:

    Maybe corn doesn’t taste good with ice cream but your cornbread looks like it would taste good with a taco salad with a generous dollop of sour cream (which I like about the same as ice cream – though in different circumstances, of course ;+)

  2. phyllis says:

    that sounds delicious. i use the krusteaz fat-free cornbread and add a can of creamed corn (no longer fat free, i guess) and a handful of shredded cheese…sometimes i add a can of chiles. i’ll have to try the onions and the rotel:-) thanks!

  3. Vickie says:

    I created something very similar for my bunch. They absolutely love it!! I have to buy Rotel by the case because we go through so much. I also buy Jiffy by the case and keep it in the freezer when it is on sale. Jiffy Cornbread is the best!!!
    Hope ya’ll are doing okay in the NE part of the state. School is in session tomorrow for our town but OKC is out and the other surrounding areas. It looks like a tornado has hit most of the neighborhoods.

  4. Chrystal says:

    Oh yes! I’m definitely going to have to try that recipe!
    Does the rotel make it spicy? Just want to make sure that it will be ok for the kiddos….

  5. Tina in Thailand says:

    Corn in icecream. Hmmm, actually that is a very popular flavor here in Thailand. Bet you didn’t know that corn was a dessert, but yessiree, corn ice cream is a hot seller here. KFC even sells a corn sundae! Some of our other look but don’t eat flavors are: Taro, Green Tea and Red Bean.
    So go ahead an scoop a dollop of ice cream on that cornbread, you may like it! πŸ™‚

  6. Scott says:

    You can ignore my first linky; i accidentally linked to an old post. i hate confusing you.
    Anyway, my idea takes giftcards to the next (and more fun) level.

  7. carrie says:

    I just found out at a weekend potluck that it’s a thing around here to put syrup on cornbread. I still favor honey, but it was something new to try, and I was the only one in the room that had never had it that way!

  8. Amy says:

    I’m trying to follow all the directions and do this correctly! I love this site and it has helped me with great ideas. I feel like I will forever be a student–learning from others!

  9. Brandi says:

    All of your ice pictures remind me of the times that would happen while I was living in Memphis. In a weird sort of way it is beautiful to look at, but very destructive, I know!

  10. Kara says:

    I love this cornbread! I hope you all are staying warm. We lucked out and the ice we were supposed to get was just cold, yucky rain. We’re praying for our neighbors in Oklahoma.

  11. Dawn says:

    Eager to go through all the ideas! Thanks for the corn bread recipe too! We have Rotel out here in CA so I’ll be trying it! πŸ™‚

  12. Jacquelyn@Because I Said So! says:

    I do plenty in the kitchen, and the weather here is snowy, icy, rainy, so your cormbread sounds dee-lish, except:
    1) I live in Toronto, Ontario, you know, up north, and I have a feeling your fave Rotel will not be on the shelves. What size of can are you using half of? I can try to make a mix of diced, canned tomatoes and canned green chilies.
    2) I’ll have to use another brand of cornbread mixβ€”what is the number of cups that 2 packs of Jiffy come to?
    Once I get your response, it’s off to the store.
    This is my first time on your WFMW, but not the first time on the site. You’re a fabulous blogger! Excellent job!

  13. JCK says:

    Shannon, this sounds yummy! I can’t wait to try it. Hope things get better where you are.
    Oh, I did my usual SPAZZY wrong linkage. Please delete #174. My profuse apologies! You’d think by noon my brain would be working, since I’ve been up since 5am. But, NOOOO… Oh, the humiliation…
    Happy Holidays!

  14. Ann says:

    WFMW is a great blog carnival…I have picked up so many helpful tips and stumbled on many wonderful blogs.
    The ice pix are amazing. Wow! We have ice, too…and finally got up to 30 degrees. It’s a heat wave out there πŸ™‚
    Oh, and I love the new WFMW logo. And the Sunday Linkage logo, too.

  15. Activities Coordinator says:

    I know you did your best not to send that weather to me, however, it is on the way. Temperatures should be better than your’s have been.
    No offense, but next time I think I need to appeal to a higher power!
    Thanks for the recipe. Looks like we’ll be indoors a lot over the next few days. Now we’ll have something to eat! Yum!

  16. Rebecca says:

    I just made the Mexican Cornbread for my women’s bible study tonight and of course I had to try a piece. It is wonderful, I am not a big cornbread eater, but this is great!! Thanks for the recipe!!!
