Have you ever wanted to make something a little different for breakfast or for brunch, but you have someone in your house (ahem, like your husband) who does not like to eat eggs or anything with too much melted cheese? No eggs and no cheese eliminates a large percentage of breakfast foods. It took me a long time to come up with something that my husband and my children would like. That's when it came to me that they all like cornbread and they all LOVE bacon.
Today's Recipe: Easy Bacon & Scallion Cornbread
1 package of Betty Crocker Cornbread Mix
1/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp butter or margarine, melted
3 large slices cooked bacon

Step 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2. Generously spray an 8-inch square pan with cooking spray.

Step 4. Prepare the cornbread mix as instructed on the package and pour the entire mixture into the greased 8" pan.
Step 5. Sprinkle the bacon pieces evenly over the top of the mixture. Then do the same with the scallions.

This recipe serves approximately 6 people. I must say that this cornbread recipe was a huge hit with my family . . . well, except for our 6 year old son, who refused to try it because he is anti-vegetable and will not touch any food that is green willingly.
As always, if you try this super-easy recipe, let me know how you like it. What other kinds of things would you want to try in cornbread?
