Hi there, friends! Did you know I recently reigned the cornbread queen? Yes, it’s true:) One of my friends Sandy from Simply Happy Foodie was doing a Facebook live cooking demo and she gave us a huge shout-out and said, “talk is, Home Pressure Cooking is known as the cornbread queen.” That gave us a huge chuckle. I guess there are worse things to be known for. In honor of that, let’s add a new recipe to the list, Instant Pot Bacon Cheddar Cornbread!

We love making cornbread here on Home Pressure Cooking. We also love to experiment. Let’s see all the fun ways we have made cornbread in the Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi.

Instant Pot Cornbread variations:

  1. cornbread and peanut butter
  2. cornbread and apples
  3. sour cream cornbread
  4. cornbread with Rotel
  5. Cornbread Pot pie
  6. Tamale cornbread
  7. Creamed corn and sour cream cornbread

I am sure there may be a few we are forgetting to mention. Today’s cornbread recipe calls for one box of Jiffy, an egg, 3 slices of cooked bacon, extra sharp cheddar cheese, and a little milk.

Bacon cheddar cornbread in the Instant Pot step by step

First, we cooked up our bacon using the Mealthy CrispLid. I set it at 500 degrees for about 7 minutes. If you want it crispier, cook for a longer time. We love the lid because you can see the bacon or whatever else you are making in real-time action.

We love using our 3 cup flower bundt pan for so many versatile recipes. Martha White cakes are another specialty of ours.

So go grab a few Jiffy mixes and get ready to have some fun experimenting. Who knows what we will come up with next. P.S. you can always add a tablespoon of sugar to the mix if you want it on the sweeter side.

Pin it, make it, enjoy!
