when i first saw this recipe and saw the amount of oil being used i thought it was a misprint until i realized that this isn't baked.....we use to add cracklin to ours but i guess if it is being fried the bacon will do much better.i appreciate this recipe because i can just fry up enough for me instead of baking a whole pan, since i am the only one eating cornbread because everyone else dose biscuits....i'll be trying this this week.....thx much
