On a trip down south, my parents came across a restaurant that served Broccoli Cornbread as the bread in it’s complimentary bread basket. After falling in love with it, my mom, being the outgoing and charming woman she was, convinced the chef to divulge the recipe to her. Upon returning from their trip, my mom told me all about this cornbread, which, I must admit at first sounded kind of strange. I decided to try it out as one of the first things I ever really cooked before, and needless to say, I was addicted. I’ve altered the recipe by adding a little more broccoli than was called for because I personally love broccoli, and the texture it gives the bread is incredibly delicious.
