This is supposedly John Wayne’s corn bread recipe. One of the local grocery stores gives out recipes and this was one of them.  It tastes really good. If you are a pepper head, you’ll like the Jalapeno in this.

  • 1 cup Yellow Corn Meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 small Onion, chopped
  • 1 clove Garlic, peeled and pressed
  • 1 cup Cream style Corn
  • 1/4 cup Bacon Drippings
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 medium Jalapeno Pepper minced
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar Cheese

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Combine corn meal,baking soda, salt, onion,garlic, corn, oil, eggs and sour cream. Beat well.

Mix Cheddar cheese and jalapeno pepper together.

Spread half of the mixture in an oiled 10 inch baking pan or cast iron skillet. Spread pepper and cheese mix over batter. Cover with remaining batter. Bake for 45 minutes. So good served with creamy butter and pinto beans.
