Hartzler's Family Corn Bread

We’ve come to realize that you can take almost any family favorite recipe and make it better!  Gut health is extremely important, that’s why I’ve used a natural ‘sucanat’ sweetener and also ‘soaked’ my grains before making this corn bread.  However, it can certainly be made using regular sugar and without soaking the grains.  It will taste great either way!  Check out the other ingredient options in the parenthesis. 

Ingredients

2 cups sucanat (or sugar)
1 ½ cups Hartzler Butter
2 eggs
2/3 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup plain kefir + 1 cup Hartzler Whole Milk (or 2 cups *sour milk)
2 cups spelt flour (can also use regular flour or whole wheat flour)
2 cups corn meal

Directions

1) Direction A: If you are soaking your grains, mix the sucanat (or sugar), butter, milk/kefir, flour and corn meal. Cover and let set 6-8 hours. Then add eggs, baking soda and salt.
2) Direction B: If you are NOT soaking your grains, cream sucanat (or sugar) and butter. Add the eggs, salt and baking soda. Lastly, mix in the flour, corn meal and milk—alternating the dry ingredients with the liquid.
3) Bake: Pour in a greased 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

 

Bacon Cheddar Cauliflower Chowder

Do you love Bacon Potato Soup but don’t like all the carbs?  Try our Bacon Cheddar Cauliflower Chowder!  A thick and creamy, low-carb alternative to Baked Potato Soup!  Pair it with our Hartzler Favorite corn bread for a delicious combination.

Ingredients

8 slices center-cut bacon, chopped (half used for garnish)
1⁄2 small onion chopped
1 celery, chopped
1tsp minced garlic
2 tablespoons of Hartzler's Butter
salt & pepper
4 cups grated cauliflower (1⁄2 large cauliflower head)
2 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups Hartzler's Whole Milk
2 cups chicken broth, divided
3 -4 dashes hot sauce (or more or less)
2 1⁄2 cups shredded cheddar cheese - divided (half used for garnish)

Directions

1) Whisk together flour and 1/4 cup chicken broth in a small bowl then set aside.
2) Saute bacon in a large soup pot over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate then remove all drippings from the pot. Add butter, chopped onion (if using,) celery, and garlic to the pot then season with salt and pepper and saute until vegetables are tender, about 4-5 minutes.
3) Add cauliflower and onion powder (if using) to the pot then stir to combine. Add water then place a lid on top and steam cauliflower until tender, stirring a couple times, about 5-7 minutes. Add remaining chicken broth and milk then turn up heat and bring to a boil.
4) Slowly whisk in flour/chicken broth mixture while stirring, then turn down heat and simmer for 3-4 minutes, or until chowder has thickened. Turn off heat then stir in 2 cups cheddar cheese until smooth, then stir in half the cooked bacon. Taste and adjust salt, pepper, and/or hot sauce if necessary. Serve topped with remaining shredded cheese, cooked bacon, and green onions, if desired.
5) NOTE: Use a food processor's chopping and grating blades to make prepping veggies and cheese a breeze.
