If you love to eat healthy but your family doesn’t always comply you have to get a bit more creative. I grew up eating lots of different types of fruits & veggies…hubby not so much! I’ve pretty much hidden them in our food since day one for added nutrition. I love having recipes on hand that I call “Pantry Recipes” where I can whip the ingredients straight from my stocked pantry. That’s where this recipe was born! Along with The Wisest Kid in the Whole World™, Campbell’s soup has compiled tons of tasty recipes that kids will love!: http://goo.gl/mT93RO
As long as you have a stocked pantry of Campbell’s soups you have an excellent base for so many recipes. Plus, if you have kids then you know what it is like to have to come up with something FAST! Sometimes this basil tomato cornbread recipe & a nice cup of soup are the perfect, comforting meal! Tomato soup is perfect for kids because you can put on any kind of kid-friendly toppings & find lots of fun dunkable treats to go with it!
Basil Tomato Cornbread Recipe
1 cup white flour
1 cup coarse corn meal
1 can of condensed Campbell’s Tomato Soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup corn kernels
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons dried basil
Optional- sun-dried tomatoes for garnish
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
2. Spray 9 inch baking pan with cooking spray. I personally use a longer pan for smaller/thinner bars with a divider so all of mine are the same size. You can also use a cast iron skillet.
3. Mix dry ingredients well then add milk, egg, & chop in butter. Add can of Campbell’s condensed soup. No need to add water, sugar or salt since it is all in this handy can! Combine all ingredients but do not over mix.
4. Pour batter into pan & place in over for about 15 minutes. Check bread with toothpick. Preferably serve warm or freeze for later use.
For the sun-dried tomato decoration, top each section before backing with a piece. It won’t affect the cooking process!
Some other options to add in are cheese, peppercorns, Tabasco, honey to sweeten, & just about anything else that appeals to you or your kids! Tasty & easy! Remember to check out more recipes from The Wisest Kid in the Whole World™ & Campbell’s!
