In making Dallas's Mexican Cornbread - it does not tell me what size of skillet to use. I have 2 a med and a large...which one? I guess one would be a 6 inch and the other an 8 inch. Help!

Hi Rachel, Here is the recipe you're looking for: http://www.pauladeen.com/recipes/recipe_view/vidalia_onion_cornbread

I'm actually just looking for the measurements for a recipe I saw last friday. The ingredients are: 1 small box cornmeal muffin mix, onions, milk, sour cream, cheese (pepperjack if one wants) 1/4 tsp dill weed. An ice cream scoop is used. It is baked for 10 minutes at 450. As you'll notice I came in on the tail end of the recipe, that's why you only see the 1/4 tsp listed. Would love to try these the next time we have chili I think they would go great together. Thanks so much. Rachel

It is the lightest and most moist cornbread I've ever tasted.
