Here's an easy recipe for gluten-free cheesy herb cornbread, baked in a skillet. Customize it by adding your favourite herbs and cheese!
This gluten-free cheesy herb cornbread makes a perfect addition to a casual meal. It's quick and easy because . . . I "cheat" and use a mix, and then just add my own herbs and cheese and bake it in a cast iron pan.
Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free Cornbread Mix is a favourite of mine because it never fails. Make it dairy-free by using rice milk or almond milk, oil instead of butter, and a sheep's cheese like Pecorino or Manchego instead of a cow's milk cheese like Parmesan Reggiano or cheddar.
Add in your favourite herbs. I used Italian style herbs like oregano, rosemary, thyme and parsley. Bake it right in a skillet in the oven and savour the hearty tastes of the American South!
I've also added dill to this gluten-free cornbread on other occasions to accompany a salmon dinner, and I've made it into mini muffins spiked with jalapeño with this recipe for Mini Cheesy Cornbread Bites. Get creative and mix in YOUR favourite additions to this easy mix.
Cornbread muffins are fun to bake, too. These Blueberry Buttermilk Gluten-Free Cornbread Muffins are a favourite for Thanksgiving or any fall morning!
