Its good to be able to find that food that grandma always made that no one else knows about.



This was ok... but it needs something. I admit I was worried putting the batter into our big cast iron skillet (how long am I going to be cleaning this?) but it came out perfect without sticking at all. The taste is pretty bland. I used fresh side pork; maybe bacon would be a better choice. Thanks so much for the Southern recipe - we really enjoy old/regional recipes.
