How to Make Virginia Spoonbread (or Spoon Bread)
- Pour boiling water over cornmeal in a bowl which can withstand the heat. Stir and wait for it to cool, at least 30 minutes. Grease a pie plate with lard (or butter) and set aside.
- Preheat oven to 350F. Combine soaked cornmeal with all remaining ingredients and stir well. Put into pie plate and bake, stirring every five minutes or so or until desired consistency.
- Some people add a few tablespoons of milk each time they stir and bake for a longer time. It just depends on what consistency you prefer and it also helped to keep the bread from getting too hard and dry when wood was the oven's source of heat!
