Lightly grease two corn stick pans. If you have only one, you can make the corn sticks in batches, or you can use a large cast iron skillet instead of corn stick pans.
Mix together the cornmeal, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, bacon and jalapenos. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, buttermilk, and bacon grease and pour into the cornmeal mixture. Stir well until well combined. The batter will be thick.
Spoon the batter evenly into the corn stick pan, filling each indentation to the rim
