Olive Oil & Rosemary Cornbread
Sweet or Savory? Whatever you prefer, who doesn’t like cornbread? We tweaked a recipe using Villa Gabriella Certified Organic, Extra Virgin Olive Oil & fresh rosemary for golden, tender & moist bread with a hint of sweetness. Enjoy it with a glass of wine as an appetizer or serve it with our Slow Cooker Turkey Chili for lunch dinner. Yields approx. 8 slices.
