Baked beans and cornbread are two delicious southern classics. Who doesn’t love a bowl of creamy, smoky baked beans or a big piece of flaky cornbread?
So what if we put them together?!
Our food blogger Kate turned our baked beans world upside down when she introduced us to this baked beans recipe that is almost a meal on its own.
The recipe starts off simple as a classic baked bean recipe using a whole jar of Randall Great Northern Beans. Bacon, onion, tomato paste, mustard and cumin help give the beans a little depth of smoky and zesty flavor, but we hit it with a little apple cider vinegar for a little extra bite.
Then things get a little crazy! Mix and pour your favorite cornbread mixture over the beans in a skillet or casserole dish. Toss it in the over to cook the beans and solidify flavor while a fluffy and flaky crust of cornbread forms on the outside. Oh my goodness… just look at it!
Once it’s done, scoop, cut, grab, whatever way you have to do to try a bite of these deliciously unique baked beans. Baked beans are a great summertime recipe, but the fluffy and warm cornbread layer makes this recipe great warm-up food when the temperature drops in the fall and winter. This recipe is the epitome of comfort food! Not to mention, this dish will visually impress your family and friends, making you look like a master chef. You don’t have to tell them how easy it really is though!
