Cheddar Cornbread Recipe

When it comes to making bread for our Thanksgiving feast, I nearly always skip standard (boring) white rolls in favor of fresh cornbread. I adore how the slightly sweet bread tastes when dipped in gravy and topped with Thanksgiving turkey. There are many delicious variations, but this recipe for Cheddar Cornbread is a family favorite. It is perfectly savory and scrumtious—just the thing to make our Thanksgiving dinner complete.
