How to Make Cornbread Bruschetta

The beauty of this recipe is the sweet cornbread bruschetta pairs beautifully with the spiciness of the shrimp. Here’s how to get perfect little cornbread disks:

  1. Bake a cornbread mix as directed (shhhh, I won’t tell anyone)
  2. Cut into individual squares or circles.
  3. Then, place slices on a grill pan or a Foreman grill and grill about three minutes.

The result is perfect crispy, flattened bruschetta cakes. So yummy!creole shrimp simmering in skillet

How to Make Creole Shrimp

To make the perfect spicy shrimp topping for this bruschetta, I used Imagine® Organic Culinary Simmer Sauce in Louisiana Creole.  I love these sauces! Add your meat or veggies, simmer, and serve.  It’s that simple. The Louisiana Creole Sauce was SO easy to use with the shrimp.  I seared the shrimp for 3-4 minutes, and then let them simmer in the sauce for about 5 minutes more.  Perfection.

Don’t be intimidated by cooking shrimp. These babies pink up in no time and the sauce does all the work!


This is such a showstopper on any holiday buffet or game day spread. Hope you love it!
