Family Favorites Inspire New Cornbread Recipes

The winter months are a great time to gather with loved ones and enjoy delicious, cherished recipes. Family favorites made with cornbread now have a new way to shine with the 16th Annual Martha White® and Lodge Cast® Iron National Cornbread Cook-Off.

“Look to your own dinner table for the perfect source of inspiration for an original cook-off entry,” said the Martha White baking expert, Linda Carman. “Everyone is impressed by traditional recipes with a twist, like our 2006 winner Monte Cristo Cornbread Skillet, but ideas for your own original recipe can come from anywhere.”

Enter your original main dish cornbread creation by Feb. 29, 2012, and you could be one of the top 10 finalists who compete at the National Cornbread Festival on April 28, 2012, in South Pittsburg, Tenn. The grand prize winner will receive a ,000 cash prize. Entries must be prepared with at least one package of Martha White Cornbread Mix using Lodge Cast Iron Cookware.
