Adventures of a Modern Day, Middle-Aged Hero, on the Glory Road(to family security)


Wish it was MY idea...

Once upon a time, I was cruising the Internet machine looking for ways to 'jazz up' a box of Jiffy Cornbread mix.  While a true southerner might not accept Jiffy as being good cornbread, for this Yankee, it's not bad for being so quick and handy.  Add in a can of corn, and some diced jalapenos, and smother it with butter as soon as it's out of the oven, and it's pretty okay.

While on this journey of exploration, I came across one person who says they use the Jiffy Cornbread Pancake mix, but cook it in a waffle iron instead, and then they will serve chili on it.  I filed it away in my 'try it someday' file, and pulled it off and dusted it off today.

I wish I could remember who originally put the 'cornbread waffles' idea in my head, because it was fricking GENIUS.  Not at all crumbly like Jiffy Cornbread comes out sometimes.  Perfect, and I can't wait to try it again. 



  1. That wasn't me, but I've done the corn waffles on my blog as well. They get a great little crunch to the edges and are great topped with some venison sausage made with maple and cayenne and topped with maple syrup.

  2. I imagine they would be good with black eye peas, also.

  3. I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've never really tried black-eyed peas. We have a few bags of them...I just kind of always assumed you would treat them like beans.
