If you have never been to a Luby’s cafeteria you are missing out on a wonderful cafeteria-style dining experience. When you and your family goes to Luby’s everyone can walk away happy because you can choose exactly what you want. Luby’s is known for their from scratch cooking. They make everything fresh at the restaurant every single day. Many people go to Luby’s just to buy their amazing pies. All of their food is quite good though.
Their Jalapeno Cornbread is often served in individual muffins, you can make the same cornbread in an 8×8 baking dish, or even a cast iron skillet. You don’t need to buy boxes of cornbread mix, you can make it easily from scratch. Cornbread is super easy to make. What I love about this cornbread is that is slightly spicy with a few jalapenos thrown in for a bit of heat. This isn’t too spicy, but it’s just perfect.
