How to Store Leftover Cornbread

Cornbread lasts for several days at room temperature in an airtight container.

You can also freeze cornbread in a freezer-safe container for several months. That way, you can pull it out to eat it or to make a fresh recipe with it like the ones below.

Reheat room temperature cornbread for 10-15 minutes in a 350 F oven.
