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!
