Recipe Expert Tips

  • Paper towels spread across the top of the crock pot prevents moisture from dripping down onto the top of the cornbread and will keep it from getting moist. It also helps the casserole cook by preventing extra moisture from dripping down into the casserole adding extra liquid.
  • If using a smaller 6-quart crock pot cooking times will be longer.
  • If using the casserole crock pot cooking times may be shorter.
