Spoon Bread - Wed, 02/13/08 4:14 PM

I was feeling a bit poorly this moring when I had coffee with Mamaw Smith at 5:00AM. I read the morning paper and returned next door where I slept a few more hours. I had to take her to the MD for an issue and on the way back, she wanted to make spoon bread for me. Of course I did not refuse. A little while later, she was knocking at my door with a hot platter of spoon bread.

For those of you who do not know what spoon bread is, Mamaw takes corn meal and puts it in a double boiler and basically cooks it. She then adds shortening, eggs and a little seasoning and then fries it.

Very good with a little libation.

She also sent over a few potatoes and onions. Very good.

Do you eat the spoon bread plain or with any accompaniment?

Sundancer, I sure wish my mother would knock on my door with warm spoon bread in hand! I love spoon bread, and let me say that you are a very lucky man to have someone make it fresh for you. Chris

Mamaw Smith's looks very much like that except it is much flatter and in a pan.
