  1. Combine the cornmeal, Creole seasoning, onion, and sugar in a medium bowl. Pour in boiling water and shortening; stir until the shortening melts.
  2. Melt lard or bacon fat to a depth of 1/2 inch in a large skillet; bring to a temperature of 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) over medium-high heat. Shape heaping tablespoons of the dough into flattened balls (thickness is a personal preference). Fry in hot oil, turning once, until crisp and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.

I think this is a novel variation on cornbread--which is why I tried it, but I was disappointed in the flavor. I like cornbread with spicy foods to temper the spice so there was a little to much heat in here without enough sweet to balance it out. Great texture though. I used vegetable shortening for frying--keeps it vegetarian-friendly.

I toned down the creole seasoning a bit and the results were excellent.

I wanted to give this three stars because it was so much trouble to keep the patties from crumbling apart. They just completely fell apart as I was placing them on the plate. However, I love the flavor of this cornbread patty and I will definitely keep the recipe to play with later. I might try some different types of corn meal, maybe add a bit of flour, and egg or something to see if it will hold together better.
