    I like to have it with chili , or with red beans and it's a must have with greens (you need to be Southern to enjoy greens) with smoked ham hock !

    My dear mother would put chunks of cornbread in a big glass , fill it with buttermilk and eat it with a spoon. As a boy I would watch her enjoy it and think that must taste soooo gooood, but to my amazement it was not to my liking...I still find buttermilk nasty and this is from someone that enjoy's potted meat !

    I like cornbread in a big bowl of chicken and sausage gumbo. If there's no cornbread, then a big spoon of potato salad works too.

    Cornbread is one of those foods you eat in things with food, or just by itself. That said I like mine made with bacon drippings in the batter an cooked in the old iron skillet..

    Well, there IS no "wrong way" to eat cornbread, at least that I've ever found. Mostly, it'll all depend on what kind of mood I'm in, I think. If I'm really hungry, I'll usually crumble some up in my soup or stew, just to "enrich" it a bit, AND have some on the side with butter. Now, I can't eat nearly as much of it as I'd love to, but what I DO eat is appreciated like never before. I'm just glad to still be here TO enjoy the pleasure of it, and all else.

    And I'm assuming you're talking about the "pan type" here. I also love what we call "lacey cornbread" too. I don't think there IS a way to make corn meal taste anything but scruptous, is there?

    I bake mine in a cast iron skillet and take a small piece of paper towel and coat the bottom and sides of the skillet with butter. It never sticks.
    I like to put a little jalapeno in it, the sliced rings that come in jars from companies like Star, etc. I cut the rings up a bit into about quarters.
    Then, I take a slice and cut it open face on a plate and put the beans or chili on top. Be sure to put some of the juice on as well. I use the cornbread recipe on the Alber's cornmeal box.

    Boy you all sure know how to make a guy hungry. And I just got done eatin supper too! I like my cornbread slightly over done so it has a crispy top and bottom. I like it with butter and I eat it in the beans and along side. If any is left I like to crumble it up in some milk. when I was younger I liked to give it a spritz of salt when in the milk. I don't do that any more.

    This puts me in mind of the tale related by the late, great author of Southern Civil War lore, Shelby Foote. He said that the Southern soldier's usual daily ration was corn meal and bacon, from which they made "plonk." The bacon was fried until every last bit of grease was extracted, and the grease was then mixed with the cornmeal which made kind of a thick, greasy cornmeal cake that made a "plonk" noise when it hit their metal plate. The soldiers came to like it so much that there was an incident when Gen. Lee ordered the mess wagons to set up in a rest area and provide normal hot meals. Apparently some of the soldiers rioted and destroyed the wagons because they wanted their plonk.

    I have 2 Lodge cast iron cornbread skillets baking in the oven right now. We're going to have it with home-made soup for dinner tonight ...

    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!

    Growing up, I didn't know you could eat corn bread without butter and molasses. I see people putting it in soup or beans and I think they are breaking the law.

    Sometimes in chili, but otherwise on the side with butter and strawberry jam!!! Grandad liked it in what he called "sweet milk" aka whole milk and Grandmother liked it in buttermilk. Buttermilk in cooking is good, but by itself---no way!!

    Still warm, crumbled into a bowl with sweet milk (as opposed to buttermilk. I feel a bit like a traitor to my heritage, but just never could hack the stuff). The yellow, sweet kind? Never knew it existed until I was grown. Not bad, but not what I think of as cornbread.

    How to eat cornbread?Open mouth,insert and chew,then swallow.I wash it down with ice cold buttermilk.As far as sticking in the pan,I use whatever oven safe utensil I have handy,lost all my CI cook wear in a house fire back in 1988.I spray it with some product like Pam or whatever is handy.Never had it stick yet.As far as what to put on it?Butter,honey,molasses,
    home made preserves or what ever strikes your fancy.
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
