Picked up some cornmeal mush from the store the other day. Had not had this in a while. Dust with flour, fry it up and cover with syrup. Oh yea and some fried SPAM alongside!

A breakfast food from the past...nice brown and crispy crust.
Spam sounds like a good side
And plenty of maple syrup
Any brand of corn meal stand out that you could suggest?

My father loves him some fried mush, and I haven't had it in ages. Might have to invite him over for some soon, that sounds good.

Fried mush and scrapple explains a lot about Philadelphia.
 
If I had been raised on that I'd "boo" Santa Claus, too!

Don't recall the brand name. It's in a light yellow package in the refridgerated section. That's the one that seems popular here in Indiana.

An interesting variation on fried much is a cajun dish called Couche-Couche from a cookbook..."Tell Me More"

In the 2005-2006 Mush thread at http://www.roadfood.com/Forums/Cornmeal-Mush-m166887.aspx I posted:
When I was working at the food mart, we used to handle Clearfield's Mush, which came in a rectangular block similar to the Velveeta package that is inside the 2 lb. Velveeta box. I tried using Google to see if it still might be available, but nothing comes up, so I guess they are out of business.

In the same thread, I also posted: After checking around, I see some Jaxon's Mush in a roll in some of our stores (central Illinois). After checking Google, Jaxon's is a small company in Dayton, Ohio.  Phone: (937)890-7350  They also have a Facebook page.

That's it Jaxon's. That is the one popular here in Indiana also.

I'm guessing that's pronounced "coosh coosh" or "cooshay cooshay" unless it's cooked by Charo, in which case it becomes "cootchie cootchie".

NOLA site pronounces it coosh-coosh
Thanks for the Charo reference. I was trying to recall her name
