Cheesy Popcorn Bread

Many people use popcorn as a substitute for croutons in soups and salad. But did you know that you can use popcorn as an ingredient? Besides boosting the whole-grain power of this versatile side dish, the ground popcorn used here adds texture and interest and helps to create a light and airy corn bread.

Use a well-buttered cast iron skillet for best results.

4 cups popped corn      View Available Products
1 cup whole-grain cornmeal      View Available Products
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg      View Available Products
1 cup milk or buttermilk      View Available Products
1/4 cup melted butter      View Available Products
1 cup shredded Manchego cheese (or another cheese of your choice)      View Available Products
4 oz (optional) mild diced green chiles      View Available Products

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish, or use a cast iron skillet for best results.
  2. Process the popcorn in a blender or food processor until finely ground; this could take as long as 5 minutes. Transfer to a mixing bowl and add the cornmeal, sugar, baking powder and salt, whisking until well blended.
  3. Whisk together the egg, milk and melted butter in a liquid measuring cup, then add to the mixing bowl, stirring to form a light batter. Scatter the cheese and chilies, if using, over the surface and stir just until evenly distributed.
  4. Pour the batter into the baking dish and spread it evenly into the corners; bake for 25 minutes or until lightly browned at the edges and a tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Cut and serve.
