Cheesy Spoon Bread

Monday, January 12, 2009

This traditional southern side dish tastes great with pork and is good with other meats as well. I just love spoon bread!

What you’ll need:

¾ c dry milk
½ c cornmeal
2 c water
1 ¼ c shredded cheddar cheese, divided
3 eggs, separated (yolks in one bowl, whites in another)
2 Tbl butter
¼ tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 1 ½ quart casserole dish. In a large saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, cornmeal and water. Stirring constantly, cook until mixture comes to a boil. Boil, continuing stirring, until mixture thickens, usually about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in ¾ cup cheese, egg yolks, butter and baking powder. Beat egg whites in small bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold into corn meal mixture until well combined. Pour into prepared dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes or until top is golden and filling is set. Serve warm. Makes 6 servings.

dry powdered milk - $1.99
cornmeal - $3.12/5 pound bag
shredded cheese - cheddar - $1.50
eggs - $1.09/ dozen
butter - $1.75/pound
