Recipe: Skillet Cornbread


On a cold winter’s day, what’s better than a steaming bowl of soup or chili? A side of warm cornbread for dipping, that’s what. This comfort food classic pairs great with fish or chicken, too, and this simple recipe uses a mix to save time and effort.

Servings: 10

1 tablespoon margarine
½ cup chopped onion
½ cup chopped celery
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
¼ teaspoon baking powder
1 package cornbread mix
1 egg
