I often get tired of trying to think of starchy side dishes to go with meat and veggies for dinner. I mean, we all get tired of rice, rice, and more rice (especially when we’re talking about brown rice)! And even as a potato lover, that can get old after a while as well. So, I was excited when I recently remembered how good and easy homemade cornbread can be … not only is it a great way to switch things up, but it’s super yummy leftover (especially if you pan fry it in a little butter)! This Buttermilk Scallion Cornbread Casserole is easy and yummy.
I love the added scallions in this new recipe and also how good the texture is thanks to the buttermilk. With less than 10 minutes of mixing time, this can be baking in the oven while you prepare the rest of dinner for a tasty, filling meal.

Of course we recommend veggies with every dinner meal, but in addition here are some recommended main courses to serve alongside your cornbread.

This recipe sounds delicious!! Could you freeze any leftovers? Just like bread?
It is still regular cornbread just baked in a casserole dish instead of a cast-iron skillet
Is this just cornbread with scallions or is less “solid”? I guess the word casserole is throwing me off, but it looks like regular cornbread consistency. Is that right?

I thought all recipes using buttermilk required baking soda in addition to baking powder.
My go-to cornbread recipe is almost identical to this (no scallions, sugar instead of honey) and it does call for 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda. (from Cooking with Stone Ground Flour, Arene Kovash)
Lisa has tested this and there was no need for the baking soda. – Nicole
