Emeril's Cast-Iron Honey Cornbread
This honey-sweetened buttermilk cornbread from Chef Emeril Lagasse is made with all cornmeal -- no flour -- giving it a crumbly texture and rich, toasty flavor. The cornbread is baked in a cast iron skillet and can be prepared in the oven or directly over an outdoor grill.
One batch of batter is divided into three bowls to stir in three irresistible ingredient combinations: Orange-Rosemary, Jalapeno-Cheddar, and Caramelized Onion-Bacon. These mini muffins are perfect appetizers for serving at a buffet or a barbecue.
