Cornbread Stuffed Bell Pepper Rings – National Cornbread Finalist Recipe!

I’m giving away a complete Dollywood/Smoky Mountain Vacation! Click here for details.

On April 28th I was honored to serve as a judge at the National Cornbread Festival in South Pittsburg, Tennessee. Little did I know, this would be one of the most difficult jobs I’ve ever had. I’m sure all of the judges would agree with me on that, though!

Each and every dish was truly amazing, blending new and classic flavors together in fresh and fun ways. We finally narrowed it down to three finalist but I really and truly wanted everyone to win!
