2) Spread the ranch dressing evenly over the cheese. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
1) Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Generously coat a cast iron frying pan with up to 4 tablespoons of vegetable oil. Preheat the pan either in the oven or on the hob over a medium-high heat.
2) Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, stirring with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula until combined.
3) Pour the batter into the preheated cast iron pan. Place the pan in the oven and bake until golden brown, approximately 30 minutes. If making individual cornbreads in smaller pans, they will require a shorter cooking time.
