Daddy's Fried Cornbread
you can add cracklings, corn, green chilies and onion.
- 2 c
- yellow cornmeal
- 2 tsp
- 4 to 5 c
- rapidly boiling water
Mix the cornmeal with salt, pour 4 cups in and reserve 1 more just in case. Stir it very good.
Let it cool a little while about an hour. Batter should be stiff and easy to mold by hand into patties. The patties should be about 3 inches in diameter and 1/2 an inch thick. It helps to keep your hands wet, so I usually keep a bowl of water to dip my hands in.
We either cut them and butter the insides or just butter the top. Great with chili soup or beans.
