Devon’s Easy Corn Bread Recipe – Delicious!

Devon’s Easy Corn Bread Recipe – Delicious!

Happy Thanksgiving!  I know you’ve just finished putting the bird in the oven for today’s big feast.  That’s usually how it works at my house, and probably at most of the homes in the country!  Anyway, by dinner time I will be so over the turkey dinner and wondering what to make for dinner this weekend.  (I’m hoping all the leftovers are gone by then!)

corn breadWell I know after Thanksgiving the last thing I want to do is make yet another elaborate meal!  I try to stick with something simple without poultry!  One of our go to favorites is Chili with Corn Bread.  It’s super easy, feeds a crowd, filling, and delicious!

Now I’ve never been a big fan of corn bread, although I must admit it goes great with Chili.  But last month we sent my grandson Devon to cooking classes at the community park.  On his first day of class he brought home corn bread.  I had assumed it was from a mix, you know like that Jiffy corn bread mix you can buy at the grocery store.  I’ve made corn bread from that mix, it was barely ok.  Maybe that’s why I’m not such a corn bread fan, I’ve never been able to find the perfect one.

Well let me tell you the corn bread Devon made was incredible!  No mix for Devon, they made it from scratch!  But he didn’t have the recipe.  I sent him back the next week to ask for the recipe.  They must have had several requests because Devon came home with the printed recipe.

This corn bread is fluffy and light with just enough sweetness.  It’s got a more cake like consistency.  Oh ya, it’s buttery too!

Now Devon proudly makes this delicious corn bread for our family.  We all love it!  We serve it with chili, a good fall comfort food when it’s a bit chilly outside!  It also goes great with our Sunday barbecues!  It will also go beautifully with our Cheesy Chili Mac!

I thought I’d share the recipe with you!  I’m sure you’ll love it as much as we do!  By the way you can whip this up in less than an hour, and that includes baking time!

Cheddar Biscuits Recipe – Just Like Red Lobster’s! (Well Almost)

Cheddar Biscuits Recipe – Just Like Red Lobster’s! (Well Almost)

I have to admit I’m not really a big fan of Red Lobster.  As far as seafood restaurants go there are many better ones than this big box chain.  But every so often I drag my husband, who does not eat seafood at all, to suffer thru a meal mediocre meal of chicken or steak at our local Red Lobster.  I don’t go for their seafood dishes at all, I go because I have a craving for their famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits!

I love those melt in your mouth buttery cheddar biscuits served fresh from their oven.  In my opinion that’s the best thing they serve at Red Lobster, and it’s free!  But at our Red Lobster they seem so stingy with those cheddar biscuits, bringing just one biscuit per person.  I’d gladly pay for those cheddar biscuits rather than practically have to beg the server for another round.  We’re usually told they serve them so sparingly so that you can savor them oven hot.  I’m not convinced.  I think it’s more likely that the oven can’t keep up with the demand.  I mean everyone I know goes to Red Lobster just for those biscuits!

A couple of years ago I found the Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix at Sam’s Club.  It comes in a huge box with enough mix to whip up a ton of them.  I admit I bought a box.  It was okay, but you do have to add your own shredded cheese and butter. So basically you get a huge box of glorified Bisquick with packets of seasoning.  So I figured I can do this without the mix, after all I worked for Popeye’s Fried Chicken many years ago and we made biscuits.  How hard can it be?

Biscuits are pretty straight forward if you have a box of Bisquick in your pantry.  It’s basically Bisquick and liquid, milk, buttermilk, or water.  But was there a secret to those yummy Cheddar Bay Biscuits?  Well I went on a quest and with a bit of trial and error came up with this Cheddar Biscuits Recipe.

Okay they’re not exactly the same, but they come pretty close.  The best thing is you don’t have to leave home to have some.  Just be sure you stock some Bisquick in the pantry!

 

 

Cheddar Biscuits

Biscuit Ingredients:

2 1/2 Cup Bisquick

1/2 Cup cold butter – sliced into squares

1 Cup Cheddar Cheese – shredded

3/4 Cup Milk

1/2 Tsp. Garlic Powder

Topping:

1/4 Cup Melted Butter

1 Tsp. Garlic Powder

1/2 Tsp. Parsley Flakes

Directions:

Biscuits

Pre-heat oven to 425º

Cut cold butter squares into Bisquick.  Use a pastry blender or 2 forks.  Do not over mix.  Dough should be coarse and crumbly.

Stir in the rest of the biscuit ingredients.  Do not over mix, just be sure the dry ingredients are mixed in.

Dough will be lumpy and sticky, but it should hold together, not loose.

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a parchment covered baking sheet – you should get about 10-12 biscuits

Bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until tops are golden brown.

Topping:

Stir parsley and garlic powder into the melted butter.

Brush on tops of biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven.

Serve hot.
