  • Cook's Notes:
  • Number of servings stated is based on 2 biscotti per serving at 1/2 x 4 1/2 slices to serve with soup or chili. Can reduce the recipe by using any amount of leftover cornbread. I almost always add garlic powder to my butter. Other spices or herbs depending on what is being served. Can be shorter pieces for an appetizer with black eyed pea salsa, crawfish spread, chili, or Velveeta(R) hot dip, etc.

I had made a skillet of cornbread and had to try this the next day. I used a pizza cutter to cut the slices thin without crumbling the bread. Brushed some with garlic butter, some with just butter. I think my cornbread needed to dry out more as it took 20 minutes just on one side to crisp and brown, then 5 more minutes on the other side. Or maybe I was a little heavy handed with the butter brushing! It is delightful and it is a perfect use for leftover stale cornbread. Thanks HotGrandma!


I am the submitter. My usual cornbread has sugar so may make it brown quicker. I make mine to have a golden crust but not dry inside. Cooking time will vary depending on your cornbread recipe & how dry you wish it to be.


HotGrandma - this is the BEST recipe! I now make cornbread just for the sole purpose of making your recipe. My DH likes cornbread, but could really do without. He LOVES this recipe as much as I do. I've made it with the garlic, without the garlic, and the last time with just a little bit of brown sugar and cinnamon. All three ways were delicious! Thank you for sharing your recipe.
