Parmesan-Herb Cornbread Pudding is Southern buttermilk cornbread that is “twice-baked” with Parmesan cheese and fresh thyme in a savory bread pudding. Best fresh from the oven, plan on making this side dish the next time you’re serving a crowd. I guarantee they will love it–just ask my small group! What’s not to love about buttery, cheesy cornbread?

Although I normally bake my cornbread in a cast-iron skillet, this time I tried my new deep dish baker from Pampered Chef. I love this stoneware!

Tip: This recipe makes enough for 8 servings. We had a few left-overs, but this bread pudding was definitely better the first time around so make it when you are serving a larger group. Enjoy!
