Fried Mush Fri, 12/16/11 2:23 PM (permalink)
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.

            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.

                    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
