“A very simple recipe. These crispy little patties are fried and served warm, drizzled with honey, maple syrup or honey butter.” - by NYGHTSONG
Original recipe yields 12 patties
- Combine the cornmeal, Creole seasoning, onion, and sugar in a medium bowl. Pour in boiling water and shortening; stir until the shortening melts.
- 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.

However, I love the fla..." See morevor 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."
