Rory's Most Wonderful Corn Bread

Recipe by  

"This is a very sweet, delicious, cake - like cornbread that incorporates broccoli and cottage cheese to produce a heavenly tasting cornbread. I have tried this recipe on a number of anti-broccoli children and adults and they all end up begging me to make more."

What can I say? I LOVE this stuff. Food process the broccoli so my kids can't pick it out... then proceed to make an absolute pig of myself. As a vegetarian, I also feel good about adding a bit more protein to my kids diet through the addition of the cottage cheese in this recipe. I highly recommend this!

I have to be the party pooper on this one. Too much butter for one thing. The cake-like texture disappeared because it was just too butter saturated, making it heavy and very dense. Too much broccoli-can taste it very prominently, so that nice cornbread taste was completely overshadowed by it. Cottage cheese-why? It only left its white specks in the batter, making it look like little clumps of unmixed flour.

Excellent recipe just as it is written. I have made it many times and family gobbles it up. Today I changed a few things and found it even better, so thought I would share. Instead of salt and pepper, I used 1 tsp Cajunland seasoning. Instead of onions, I sauteed fresh shallots and fresh garlic in a small amount of margarine. It was wonderful! Thanks for sharing this terrific recipe.

Simply wonderful! I had my doubts about the broccoli and onion, but trusted the 5 stars this recipe had. Sure enough, it got rave reviews from my family! This is the best corn bread I have ever had! Thanks!

I was so excited to try this recipe after reading all the wonderful reviews but I ended up being rather disappointed. The bread was only mediocre. I don't think I will make it again. My disappointment may be due to my high expectations from reading the reviews.

Delicious! I used lowfat cottage cheese, substituted Egg Beaters, and lowfat margarine. Turned out beautifully and we couldn't tell it was made with low fat ingredients. This kept well for three days (only my husband and I at home!). I will use this recipe again!

This was a very lite, tasty bread. Absolutely delicious. I was worried about not cooking the onions but they were tender.

OHMIGOSH! This is by far the BEST cornbread I have ever had! My boyfriend who HATES broccoli just ate this all up. I did sauté the onions in the butter and used a little less onion (only b/c we aren't big onion fans)... DELICIOUS!!!!
