Schmacon Cornbread


In a mixer blend all ingredients except oil and crisped Schmacon until just mixed. Fold crisped Schmacon into mixture. Coat pie pan with oil. Pour ingredients into pie pan. Weave uncrisped Schmacon strips over top. Bake at 325°F in conventional oven until cornbread is firm. Optionally broil for 30 seconds if you prefer Schmacon more crisp.
