Howdy Food Lovers!
“What you’re about to read is truly one of the most unique southern inspired dishes that’s a flavor explosion in your mouth with each bite.”
You know that I believe everything tastes better with a story. Today I have something special for you that was created in Texas out of necessity… simply because she was hungry. Most great inventions have been created out of a need, and KITT’S delicious invention has now become world-famous.
A few months ago, we made our way to Jefferson, Texas to visit with Kitt Williams, the inventor of the KORNBREAD SANDWICH, and the owner of “Kitt’s Kornbread Sandwich and Pie Bar“ for the most flavorful and delicious kornbread sandwiches I’ve ever tasted.
Kitt was a hungry eight-year-old sitting in her living room. She looked for bread, but there wasn’t any. She saw the kornbread sitting on the counter from the night before, and a light went off. She could just make a sandwich using the kornbread! She did just that, and it was DELICIOUS. The rest, they say, is HISTORY! Kitt’s famous kornbread sandwich was born.
Fast forward some years, and now we have Kitt’s Kornbread Sandwich and Pie Bar, where they’re creating and slang’n the most delicious sandwiches, pies, salads, wraps, soups and desserts. Although everything is wonderful, the famous kornbread sandwiches remain the star of the show.
Kitt went through a rigorous process of figuring out how to make the kornbread work for sandwiches. She has a secret recipe for the kornbread, uses special square pans, and even has a special way of stirring the kornbread mix. It’s all thanks to Kitt’s creative process that she invented these now world-famous sandwiches.
I was excited to try her sandwiches because we heard so much about them. As soon as they sat the kornbread sandwiches in front of us I could smell that down home, southern scent of kornbread. That first bite was nothing but deliciousness. Kornbread like I’ve never tasted! They were moist, flavorful and so delicious that it was easy to understand why folks are driving from miles away to enjoy a Kitt’s Kornbread sandwich. It’s what I like to call a little kornbread deliciousness in every bite!
If you’re looking to try something NEW and truly unique, I would highly recommend you make a trip to Kitt’s Kornbread Sandwich & Pie Bar to chow down. They’re a new officially approved Trey’s Chow Down delicious destination and a MUST TRY for food lovers. I can PROMISE you’re going to fall in LOVE with kornbread all over again. I hope to see you at a table soon!
