Quick and easy dinner ideas about ingredients
I love having barbecue with corn bread. Luckily, there are now some terrific gluten free cornbread mixes on the market. My favorite is Krusteaz Gluten Free Honey Cornbread Mix, which isn’t too sweet.
I also wanted to add some veggies to go along with the pulled pork filling. My kids love corn, so I thought a bag of frozen corn would be perfect. I love using frozen vegetables since they’re so convenient and nutritious.
These days you can “steam” frozen vegetables by microwaving them right in the package. That makes this Pulled Pork & Cornbread Skillet dinner even easier!

What I also like about this Pulled Pork & Cornbread Skillet dinner is that I always have eggs and shredded Mexican cheese in my refrigerator (with extra bags in the freezer). It’s easy to keep extra bags of corn and Farm Rich Smokehouse Pulled Pork BBQ in the freezer, too.

My kids are crazy about this quick and easy dinner. I find that my son, Nathan, loves to have slices of leftover Pulled Pork & Cornbread Skillet for breakfast and lunch, too.
For variety, you can try mixing some corn into the cornbread, try a spicy pepper jack cheese instead of the shredded Mexican four cheese blend, or use another kind of frozen vegetable instead of corn.
