Classic Cornbread with Buffalo Worm

Share this post

This is the perfect classic July 4 side dish to bring to your family barbecue this year. We took this classic America recipe and gave it a spin. My favorite thing about cornbread is its gritty texture and the buttery flavor. The grittiness and mild flavor of buffalo worm powder complements the recipe perfectly and packs in some protein to this savory dish. Enjoy!
