Cornbread with Caramelized Apples and Onions

Share

This Cornbread with Caramelized Apples and Onions is one of my new Thanksgiving recipes this year. I love the flavors of the caramelized onion, apple and thyme in this recipe. Cornbread is a fantastic side dish for any Thanksgiving meal. I know you’ll love it too if you make this one.

I start by heating a skillet in the oven. While it is heating, I combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl before whisking together milk, cream cheese, pumpkin, honey, and 7 tablespoons butter. Add the wet ingredients to the cornmeal mixture. Take the skillet from the oven and brush the bottom and sides with butter. Pour the cornbread batter into the skillet. Decorate the top with red onion slices and pumpkin seeds. Bake and serve drizzled with honey.

To make Cornbread with Caramelized Apples and Onions, you will need the following ingredients:
