Uh, YUM!! This cheesy cornbread skillet is just like your favourite cornbread except THAT CRUST THO. The melted butter + hot cast iron skillet + the cornbread batter makes the crust so much more uh, crusty, and so buttery. I also added cheese, corn and jalapeños in the cornbread so it’s extra amazing. Prepare to wow your guests.
LOVE this recipe! It’s loaded with everything in traditional mushrooms, and are perfect for even appetisers! That coconut bacon on top is so essential, by the way. You’ll def put it on everything when you make it.
Oh I need to make these this Thanksgiving again!! These carrots are maple glazed, with garlic so they have a sweet, caramel-y flavour and are so soft. They’re then topped with a carrot greens chimichurri that is out of this world. If you can find multi-coloured carrots then they would be even prettier.
Finally, you neeeed a baked mac and cheese at your thanksgiving dinner for sure! This one is SO good (how many times have I said that so far?). I love the flavour the sauce gives this and the topping works so well with it.
