Recipe: Cornmeal Loaves

Cornmeal is underestimated. Try this for a very cheap and fairly easy method of giving us our daily bread!

1 cup corn meal (masa doesn't really work well here)
4 cups water
dash of salt (to taste)

In a medium to large saucepan, mix the corn meal with the water using a whisk. (A whisk will get out more lumps than a fork). Place the pan on medium heat and keep stirring until it thickens. This stage could be considered porridge and can be eaten with a little honey or cheese melted within.

To eat later, pour the remainder of the "porridge" into a loaf pan and let cool. It will turn solid, which you can later cut into slices. Fry the slices for a tasty treat! Quite filling next to a bowl of lentil soup.

Always called this fried cornmeal mush. Eat like bread, with syrup for breakfast, at dinner to accompany any meat/fish/fowl, topped with spaghetti sauce, grilled is good too, under anything creamed or gravied, cubed & fried topped with grated cheddar cheese and salsa or black beans. Brenda
