    Sounds good! I wonder how it would come out without the cheese added? My daughter is highly sensitive to dairy–we could substitute the milk but we couldn’t do the cheese.

      Kara, you can simply leave the cheese out and it works just fine! ; ) My husband likes everything better with a bit of cheese–that’s why it’s in there… but you can omit without any problem.

    Have those of you with dairy allergies tried Daiya cheese? It’s a bit pricey but it’s by far the best cheese alternative out there! It worth it for us to have a little “cheese” now and then!

    I made this today in my first every freezer cooking day. I doubled the recipe, used a glass 9×13 baking dish, then cut it into 6 pieces and put it in ziploc bags since it was so firm. I did try a little first and WOW. I love cornbread so I assumed I would like it, but for such a small ingredient list I’m surprised at the flavor. And I used cornbread mixes from Aldi so I was slightly skeptical about that too. This is going in my permanent recipe collection. Thanks!

    When you like hiking, mountain climbing, or just traveling and camping out, then sleeping bags come in pretty handy. Sleeping bags are comfortable readymade beds. Pretty uncomplicated to set up. You’ll just lay it and you’re prepared to use it. But note that not all sleeping bags are the exact same.
