Porky Blue Cornbread

Ok, so what do you do with 2+ pounds of leftover pulled pork??

You stick it in cornbread, that’s what! What a good idea this was. The pork added a nice substantive meaty factor without being overwhelming. The bread itself was buttery, moist, and just a wee bit spicy.

*Sorry for the crappy pictures… I took this to a friend’s football party and left my camera behind 😦

Porky Blue Cornbread
Makes 1 loaf
Recipe by Just the Tip

Here’s what I used:

  • 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup blue cornmeal
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup leftover pulled pork

Here’s what I did:

  • Preheat the oven to 425.
  • Spray a 8×2 loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  • In a food processor, add the melted butter, beaten egg, blue cornmeal, both flours, baking powder, salt and baking soda; pulse to combine.
  • Add the buttermilk and process for 5 seconds, or just until smooth.
  • Scrape the batter into a bowl and stir in the pork. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 40 minutes, or until the center is firm.
  • Transfer the bread to a rack to cool a bit, then turn out and let cool completely

      I don’t get this – so, there’s pulled pork inside the bread? This makes me feel weird…
