Pumpkin Cornbread

We’re still working our way through our abundant winter squash harvest. I try to mix up the ways we eat it so that it doesn’t get terribly old. We eat it in soup, with grits, even in our granola, as well as just baked with butter, salt and pepper. Recently, I had a little craving for some cornbread to go alongside some soup and that seemed like a great way to use up some leftover baked winter squash too. This pumpkin cornbread is a perfectly moist yet crunchy side dish that isn’t too sweet or dry.

Pumpkin cornbread is a tasty and moist side dish that is as comfortable with breakfast eggs and bacon as it is as a side dish on a holiday dinner table.

Canned Pumpkin or Baked Winter Squash

Canned pumpkin will work perfectly in this recipe. However, so will most any other cooked and mashed/pureed winter squash. This is a great way to use up any leftover bits for a tasty and different side dish.

Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner

Serve this cornbread with eggs and bacon for a perfectly simple and delicious breakfast. It’s great with soup or salad for lunch. Cornbread is a humble, simple quick bread but it’s always welcome at a feast for dinner. Double the recipe and bake in a 9X13″ pan for a crowd.

You may want to edit the Pumpkin Cornbread recipe. The title says "cornmeal" instead of cornbread.
