Introduction

Cracklin' Cornbread is one of my family's Thanksgiving tradition.

Cracklings are pork skin that is fried until the fat is rendered off leaving tiny crispy pieces of skin.

You can substitute it with fried bacon. But beware! High Calories!

Ingredients

    1c Crumbled Cracklings
    1/4 c Low Fat Butter Substitute
    1 1/2 c Yellow Cornmeal
    1/2 c Flour
    3/4 t Baking Soda
    1T Baking Powder
    1/2 t Salt

Preparation:

3. Drain the water from the pan. Add the butter substitute and melt it over low heat.

4. Remove from the heat and let it cool while preparing the cornbread batter.

Cooking Method:

1. Preheat your oven to 425 Degrees F.

2. Mix the cornmeal, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and 1 cup of pork cracklings together in a mixing bowl.

3. Add buttermilk.

4. Pour the cornbread batter into the cast iron skillet. Bake at 425 for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the center is no longer wet and a toothpick come out clean. Enjoy!
