  • 2 cups self-rising cornmeal white or yellow
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 (3-ounce) package real bacon bits (or about 1/2 cup freshly cooked, crumbled bacon)


  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Coat an 8x8 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. (This can also be cooked in a 10.25 cast iron skillet. Simply coat the skillet with vegetable oil at this step).
  • Whisk together the cornmeal, four, and salt. Add the eggs, vegetable oil, buttermilk, and sour cream and stir until just combined. Add the green onions and bacon and stir to combine. Pour into the greased pan and bake for 25 to 28 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
