Loaded Farmhouse Spoon Bread

I've been wanting to make spoon bread as of late - and I was telling my Extreme Country Boy (that's the boyfriend's nickname) what spoon bread was and he said his mom used to make it all the time - but she loaded it up with goodies - and I said - TELL ME MORE! 

And that's how this Loaded Farmhouse Spoon Bread was born. It's a regular spoon bread recipe (starts with Jiffy cornbread mix) and then you add sausage, bacon, peppers, corn and cheese - and it gets intense! 

What is Spoon Bread?

Spoon Bread starts with Jiffy cornbread mix and isn't really a bread. It's almost the consistency of stuffing or a bread pudding - it's moist (yes - the dreaded word) - it's a very cozy food. Comfort food for sure and a perfect side dish for the holidays.  

How to jazz up Jiffy Cornbread:  

I wanted to jazz up the regular old corn bread mix - so I just started adding to it! Spoon Bread takes Jiffy corn bread mix and adds cheese, creamed corn and sour cream - then I just kept going! I added sausage, bacon, peppers, more cheese and more corn! It's super easy - you just mix it all together and put it in the oven! So easy. :-) 

Can Spoon Bread be made ahead of time? 

Yes!!! This cheesy spoon bread can definitely be made ahead of time. Just saute everything - throw it all together and refrigerate. This would be something you could make up the night before and then pop it in the oven in the morning as breakfast for a crowd! 

Can you freeze Spoon Bread? 

Yes!!! As you can see - this recipe made a LOT of spoon bread and I'm only one person! The dogs can only eat so much with me - so I popped it in the freezer then took it for lunch a few days later - heats up like a charm! 

How do you reheat Spoon Bread?

You could definitely reheat spoon bread in the oven but I just went with the microwave since I packed the leftovers for lunch. It took about 2-2:30 minutes to heat up. It's a pretty dense food - so make sure you heat it up long enough - otherwise your center will be cold! 

How to tell when Spoon Bread is done? 

This can be a little tricky - the first test is always the toothpick test. Pop it in and see if it comes out clean - if it does - you should be good. There's also the jiggle test! Jiggle it - just a little bit - (sing it with me) - if it's jiggling - leave it in 3-4 minutes more. Don't let it get too set though - it'll be overdone and dry out. A little jiggle is always good (#thatswhatshesaid). 

How to make Spoon Bread with Jiffy Cornbread mix? 

This Jiffy Spoon Bread recipe is super easy - you add all the regular corn bread mix recipe on the box ingredients - but you add sour cream, butter and creamed corn. Then I took it a step further by adding regular corn, Maple sausage, bacon and cheese!!! 

This Loaded Farmhouse Spoon Bread is amazing! Your whole family will love it and it's a great recipe that can be a hearty side dish or a delightful breakfast for a crowd!
