Cheesy Jalapeño Bacon Cornbread

  • SERVES: 6 to 8
  • PREP: 20 minutes
  • TOTAL TIME: 1 hour

Corny, in the best possible way.

You can’t have a summer BBQ without cornbread, but you can have cornbread that’s not dry and crumbly. Butter, bacon, and buttermilk keep things correct (and two kinds of cheese don’t hurt). You get to cook and serve right in the skillet, which means your cornbread comes to the table as cute as it is tender.

Naturally nonstick for no-fuss cleanup Use on the stovetop, in the oven, or even over a campfire Unlike most cast iron, seasoning (the process of baking oil into the pan) is not required

Carved from olive wood that ages beautifully, these utensils also level up a tablescape—use them for serving salad, spicy slaw, and spaghetti. Olive wood has a natural oil finish, for stain resistance, a little shine and a lot of use.
