Spoon bread is prevalent to the South. There used to be a Spoon Bread Festival every year in September in Berea, Kentucky. Boone Tavern in Berea is famous for its spoon bread.   The bread is made with cornmeal and this recipe is for basic spoon bread.  Some people add cheeses, green onions, chives or even corn to the recipe.

Southern Spoon Bread is a wonderful side dish for any holiday gathering!

3/4 cup cornmeal

2 cups hot milk (I use 2%)

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

1/2 teaspoon salt

4 egg yolks

4 egg whites

Heat the milk on top of the stove until hot (do not boil).  Add cornmeal and continue cooking for about 3 or 4 minutes until thickens.  Remove from heat and mix in the butter and salt.  Let cool for about 15 minutes. While the cornmeal is cooking separate the eggs into two different bowls.  Beat egg yolks and egg whites separately.  Make sure you beat whites until stiff.  Once cornmeal is cooled, add egg yolks mixing with a spoon.  Fold in whites and spoon mix.  Pour into a 1 1/2 quart sprayed baking dish and bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 45 minutes or until brown on top and center is cooked.  Makes 6 servings.  Enjoy!
