I grew up eating this with chili on cold Colorado nights! This is a great alternative for plain old cornbread as a side!

I used yellow corn meal. I think I'd prefer the white finer ground version for a lighter end result. The flavor was good but the texture was a little heavy for my idea of spoon bread.

I really wanted to like this more than I did. Needs a little sugar and it has an odd texture. EDIT: Topped with sour cream and pico de gallo this is a solid 4 star recipe!

Disgustingly greasy. I could actually pour oil off when it came out of the oven. I would appreciate input on how to improve the consistency of this recipe.
