Yummy! I wanted this to be an appetizer so I put the recipe into mini muffin pans. It only took about 20 min. to cook this way, they were good as the recipe states-but better for our family with green chilis or jalapanos and cheese added. Beautiful appetizer at Thanksgiving! Thanks!

Very good bread--if a little sweet for me. I used half margarine, half butter and omitted the salt. I also used a full 12oz package of frozen broccoli. I think it would also be good with some garlic powder for an extra little oomph, and to tone down the sweetness. Thanks!

Made this as a side for the "Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf" recipe on this site. Very, very good. I took a few liberties with the recipe based on our tastes - I think we might have found it a bit bland otherwise. Adjusted the recipe to make a 9 x 13 casserole and tossed in shredded sharp cheddar, garlic powder and crushed red pepper flakes. Turned out great!

I wanted to use up cottage cheese so I made this recipe. I even made corn bread mix from scratch. I didn't have any broccoli so I made it with cauliflower. I put red onion in stead of sweet onion and butter (unsalted) in stead of margarine. It browned in less than 40 min in my oven. Tasted great!

This is a great recipe ! It is almost a meal in itself . I found it easy to put together and it goes well with many different kinds of entres .

This bread is great served cold, straight from the fridge, which makes it perfect for breakfast on the go.

Made this for a friend and her family, going through a rough time. They absolutely adored this!!! My teenage Daughter, who hates cornbread, like her Father, even loved this!!! It's a keeper!!! It's SO moist!

Excellent side dish. Very addicting! I use a different recipe, same ingredients but mine says to melt the butter in the pan and then add the corn bread/ onion/broccoli mixture without mixing in the butter. Creates a nice crust...so yummy!
