Luncheon Spoonbread

Yield 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 cup self-rising cornmeal
  • 3 cups milk, scalded
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese

How to Make It

  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet until crisp. Remove bacon; reserve 2 tablespoons of the drippings. Crumble bacon; set aside.

  2. Combine cornmeal and milk in a large mixing bowl; stir until mixture is the consistency of mush. Add bacon, onion, green pepper, and reserved bacon drippings, stirring well.

  3. Beat egg yolks well; stir egg yolks and cheese into warm mixture.

  4. Beat egg whites (at room temperature) until stiff peaks form; fold into cornmeal mixture. Spoon batter into 6 lightly greased 10-ounce custard cups. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
