Sweet Corn Spoon Bread

Sweet corn spoon bread: Perhaps the best way to eat sweet corn. Makes a great side dish or chili accompaniment.

I’m a Midwestern girl, and corn recipes are near and dear to my heart.

This sweet corn spoon bread is hands down one of the best corn-based recipes I’ve had. (This Chilean corn casserole is right up there too!)

This spoon bread is similar to cornbread – except richer and more dense. The perfect match for a spoon.
