It's the best cornbread recipe ever! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is really good! For those who don't like cottage cheese - don't worry, it totally melts into the bread and you wouldn't even know it was there if you hadn't made it yourself. Just make sure you read all of the directions prior to preparing. They tell you to mix ALL of the ingredients together except for 2 T of the cheddar cheese. Then, in the next paragraph, they tell you to melt the butter to sauté the onions and broccoli - so, just a word of caution. This is a great dish for a potluck - so enjoy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very tasty. I cut the recipe in half because there is only 2 of us. I steamed the broccoli in the microwave. I didn't have cottage cheese so i substituted cream cheese and placed the onions and garlic in the bowl with the butter that i melted in the microwave. Next time I will purchase the cottage cheese. Also, I used salted butter and did not add any additional salt. I will probably reduce the butter next time but I had already made so many changes. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Best cornbread ever, moist, tasty and delicious. We had a contest for the best cornbread at the office, I made this recipe and won first price. I will make this again for my family and friends. The Neelys are always right on! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great flavor and great way to get kids to eat veggies and cornbread! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is a crowd pleasing side dish, if you want a bumped up, turnt up cornbread, look no further. I recommend stirring the broccoli mixture into the batter, it evenly distributes the veggies into the corn bread. I have made this 3 times and am already planning to make it again. The girls at work insist on it, they are not easy to please. item not reviewed by moderator and published
DON'T add salt! My first try was far too salty. There is plenty in the cornbread mixes. Also, STIR onion and broccoli mixture into the batter. I made it in my fry pan as directed and was disappointed that the bottom of the bread was almost slimy upon serving. Flavor delicious. Cottage cheese gives moisture and is unidentifiable to those who have second thoughts. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This cornbread was great, I only had a 13 x 9 baking pan it worked out great. I madea sample dish to make certain it tasted okay for our dinner at church tomorrow. I have no worries about this dish being enjoyed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
