what would you add to corn bread?

i am in the process of making homemade chicken stock (one more hour) and im gonna have a nice homemade chicken soup tonight (using leftovers from a whole baked chicken last night) i decided to make some cornbread with it, i use a pretty traditional corn bread recipe found on the back of corn meal containers with a little bit of added sugar for sweetness. i dont have cream corn to add because omg its so good when you add that. what else would you add to cornbread to make it good? my hubby hates olives and i hate jalapeno's so im not adding that lol. any other suggestions? i was thinking maybe some shredded cheese if i cant think of anything or get any better ideas on here

  • We add sour cream to our cornbread. I'm sure you can find a recipe online.

  • Almost any veggie would be good. Bell peppers, onions, and celery all work well. I bet drained beans would also be good. I'd look through the fridge, the freezer, and the pantry to see what I could come up with.

  • Do you have any sausage? I take 1/2 roll of Jimmy Dean sausage cook and drain. Ad it and a big handful of your fav cheese.
