Greg made a boatload of barbecue sauce and while finding creative places to squirrel the leftovers in the fridge said: ‘We need to find a way to use this.’ Challenge accepted.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup melted bacon grease or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese (optional)
  • 1 jalapeno, chopped and seeded

Grease 9×9 baking pan or cast-iron cornbread pan. Preheat oven to 425. Mix dry ingredients, leaving a well in the center of the bowl. In another bowl, mix eggs, oil, sauce and milk. Pour into well in dry mix and stir until incorporated. Add cheese and jalapeno. Stir until incorporated. Spoon into prepared pan. Cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

    I start cooking my cornbread on the burner on top of the stove. It cooks on medium-high for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes then I put it in the oven. Doing this gives us more, crunchy crust – our favorite part of the cormbread.
