Dolly Parton is not just a country legend, but a true timeless icon of American music and culture.
On the other hand cornbread has always been a staple of the American South.
That’s why you gotta try Dolly Parton’s cornbread recipe prepared in a skillet, old school Southern-style!
So turn up Always Wanting You, get your skillet ready and get ready to enjoy some traditional Tennessee cornbread.
As one might expect from Dolly Parton, there’s nothing fancy about this recipe: the preparation procedure could not be simpler, but it sure sounds mighty delicious.
You will be needing some course cornmeal, salt, pepper, buttermilk, and – Dolly has been nice enough to even share her secret ingredient – bacon drippings. Because what adds to the American flavor more than bacon.
“There’s nothin’ you can’t eat with a warm wedge of cornbread alongside it,” says the country star. “That’s why I always take two pieces and slather them with butter while they’re still warm.” Yes, Queen! We couldn’t agree more.
So warm up that oven of yours and let the legacy of the great Dolly Parton extend from your record collection to your taste buds.
