EPCOT Flower & Garden Festival’s Tupelo Honey and Sweet Corn Spoon Bread

During the first day of Style of EPCOT Worldwide Flower & Yard Pageant, I determined on a whim to try the Tupelo Honey and Sweet Corn Spoon Bread from The Honey Bee-stro Outside Kitchen area. I’m so glad that I did. This very little snack requirements to be additional to your must-take in checklist. Immediately.

The spoon bread, which functions jalapeños, bacon, and house-made whipped honey butter, is new to The Honey Bee-stro this calendar year, and sells for $4.75. The spoon bread is the dimensions of a standard muffin, but you should not enable its seemingly compact sizing dissuade you from giving it a attempt.

When you may possibly be tempted to imagine it truly is just a piece of corn bread, it is really not. Whilst it does have a corn food texture, the spoon bread has a little bit of a pudding-like consistency, so calling for the will need to use a spoon to eat it.

Once you dig in, you will obtain entire kernels of sweet corn in the spoon bread, and an general wonderful bed of warmth coming from the jalapeños used in the recipe. The household-created whipped honey butter (read through that again: home-manufactured. Whipped. Honey. Butter.) on leading of the bread is extremely great, and proved to be the best counterbalance for the jalapeños’ heat. The full detail is topped by a piece of crispy bacon.

I did not know what to be expecting with my 1st bite of the spoon bread. I was delightfully surprised. I now have my initial dish at this year’s competition that I’ll be paying for once more, and, if you might be building a go to to the competition, I heartily question that you contemplate adding it to your ought to-eat listing.

If you have some thing that you would propose that I include to my pageant ought to-take in checklist, make sure you permit me know in the comment portion under.
