Fried corn meal mush

Submitted by: PPENCILL

Introduction

Make this the night before so it is ready to go for breakfast.

My dad used to make this when I was young. It was a favorite of mine.
To make more servings just use a ratio of 1 part corn meal to 4 parts water.
1/2 cup cornmeal + 2 cups water
3/4 cup cornmeal + 3 cups water
1 cup cornmeal + 4 cups water

Ingredients

    1/4 cup yellow cornmeal
    1 cup water
    1/8 tsp salt or to taste
    1 pat butter for frying
    1 tablespoon pancake syrup

Directions

Put water and salt into a small saucepan. Start heating the water. Gradually add the cornmeal, stirring constantly.
Continue cooking cornmeal over medium heat. you will need to stir often. Be careful because the mush can spaltter if an air bubble escapes to the top of the mixture.
This will need to be cooked until it's a thick consistency. Until it doesn't readily fall off the spoon and needs to be spooned from the pan.

Spoon mixture into a small bowl or pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Spread out evenly.
Refrigerate at least until cool or overnight.

Remove from bowl or pan. Slice 1/4-1/2" thick. The thinner the slice, the crispier it will be. I like my on the crispy side.
Fry slices in hot butter.
Serve with pancake syrup. Great with fresh friut added (add extra calories if adding fruit.)

Recipe serves one.

    I added a bit of sugar to mine, because I like to serve it warm with a dollop of Greek yogurt and fresh strawberries...increased calories, but I don't eat it frequently or have much at one time. - 5/31/09

  • Ohhh... THAT explains why I had trouble when I made it from another recipe. I didn't cook it until it was stiff enough before chilling it. Thanks! Now that I know the right way, I'll try it again with *your* directions. - 10/16/10

  • My husband liked this but I think smothering it in honey is the reason why. My sons and I were not fond of it but wanted to try something different. Thanks for sharing. - 1/9/10
