    Debber's Note:

    The plain version was a staple during my dad's Depression-years childhood; but we rarely had it when I was growing up. My children expect this at least once a month as a regular feature on our Saturday morning breakfast menu OR when we have breakfast-for-supper. Prepare the optional sausage and hard-boiled eggs ahead of time, and it goes together quicker-n-anything!

      I've made this several times and the family loves it. Yesterday I wanted corn muffins, so I doubled the sugar and voila! Yummy corn muffins. I just greased 24 muffin cups filled them 3/4 full of batter and baked them at 425 for--I'm guessing here--about 15-18 minutes. Thanks so much for a great recipe.

      This will be my new cornbread recipe. I made it as written without any of the optional extras, preheated the cast iron skillet in the oven, and poured it in the hot skillet. 20 odd minutes later I pulled out some of the moistest cornbread, almost cake-like, with a wonderful crunchy outer crust. Can't wait to try it again with the added goodies. Hats off to Pa.

      This was very good everyone in our family enjoyed it. I made the basic recipe it had the perfect amount of sweetness and the texture is perfect. I have a convection oven so I baked it at 415 degrees for 25 minutes. I'm looking forward to trying it with the optional ingredients.
