Sun-Dried Tomato Corn Bread

I decided to write about our cast iron skillet.

We didn’t actually buy it. My mother-in-law gave it to us because she didn’t use it often–I don’t think she could digest the idea of not washing a pan with soap. We were happy to give it a home.

One of our favorite ways to use a cast iron skillet is pan searing. I initially wanted to sear lamb chops–I should say, my husband wanted to sear lamb chops–but the logistics of dinner time, kids schedules, and meal planning didn’t allow that post.

If you want to check out a pan searing recipe, here’s an old one I posted a while back that we LOVE: pan seared scallops.

Back to today’s recipe. It was inspired by an old clip I saved in my recipe binder. I made a bunch of adjustments to make it a little lighter and easier to follow. Giving you a warning, this corn bread is not sweet. The kids didn’t eat much of it; I think the sun-dried tomatoes and rosemary may have been a little too strong of flavors for the kiddos. They tried it though, and that’s enough for me.

Warm corn bread with sun-dried tomatoes and rosemary.
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 1/2 c corn meal
  • 1/2 c white whole wheat flour (or gluten-free flour if you need)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 3/4 c whole milk (it gives it delicious richness, but you can use low-fat if you like)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 tbsp onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tbsp rosemary, fresh or dry
  1. Preheat the oven to 375. Add 1 tbsp olive oil to a cast iron skillet, swirl to make sure the bottom and sides of the pan are coated. Place in heated oven for 5 minutes to warm.
  2. Meanwhile, combine corn meal, flour, sugar, and baking soda in a bowl.
  3. In another bowl, whisk the milk, eggs, and the second tablespoon of oil.
  4. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes, onions, and rosemary.
  5. Fold the dry ingredients until well mixed.
  6. Pour into the heated cast iron skillet and bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Cut into 12 slices.

Don’t use a knife to cut the bread. You don’t want to scratch your iron skillet


Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.

Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!

A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.
