Servings 8
  • 2 cups Cooked Rice
  • 2 Large Eggs (room temp)
  • 1 cup Whole Milk
  • 1 cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1/2 Chopped Onion
  • 1 - 2 tablespoon Jalapeno Peppers
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Canola Oil
  • 1 can Cream Style Corn (14.5 oz.)
  • 3 cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  1. Getting Started

    First things first, preheat your oven to a toasty 350 degrees. Now, let's get our hands dirty and start creating this flavor-packed cornbread.

  2. The Batter Mix

    In a bowl, combine the cornmeal, salt, baking soda, diced jalapenos, and diced red onion. Give it a good stir to blend the dry ingredients. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, oil, and cream-style corn. Slowly incorporate the wet mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until well-blended. Now, fold in the cooked rice, allowing it to absorb the moisture and thicken the batter. And here's where the magic happens – fold in the shredded cheddar cheese. The more, the cheesier, but feel free to adjust based on your preferences. The batter should be a tantalizing mix of textures and flavors, promising a moist and cheesy outcome.

  3. Into the Skillet

    Grease a 10-inch cast-iron skillet with butter and a dusting of cornmeal. Pour the batter into the skillet, making sure it settles evenly. Pop it into the preheated oven and let the alchemy begin.

  4. Baking Bliss

    After about 45-50 minutes, your kitchen will be filled with the irresistible aroma of Creole/Cajun cornbread. To ensure it's cooked to perfection, insert a toothpick into the center – it should come out clean. The golden-brown color is also a good indicator.

  5. Time to Taste

    Once out of the oven, resist the urge to dive in immediately. Allow the cornbread to cool slightly before cutting into it. Trust me, the wait is worth it.


To level this Creole Cornbread up even further add these ingredients:

1 tbsp Creole Seasoning (I strongly suggest Creole Kick)

1 tsp Cumin

Small Shrimp can be added as well

2 - 3 tbsp chopped Jalapenos with seed for that bite!
