Recipe Box, Sweet Red Pepper & Onion Cheesy Cornbread

This quick bread, full of veggies, tastes like cornbread but not quite as dense and heavy~

The inspiration for this bread came from the Neely’s Triple Corn Quick Bread from The Food Network

I lightened up their recipe by reducing the amount of cheese to 1 cup and I also swapped  the hot jalapeno for sweet red pepper and onion for a different flavor profile

Melt remaining 3 T butter in a bowl and add egg and milk.  Stir into dry ingredients and add veggies.  Pour into a greased 9″ x 5″ loaf pan.  Bake for 35-45 minutes until done, testing with a toothpick or cake tester.  Let cool in pan for 10 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack.
