This is my Grams recipe...I can still see her getting out her bacon grease and frying this for breakfast, with her homemade maple syrup...Yum! My kids love this recipe and asked me to make some for tomorrow morning...I was happy to oblige. Such a simple recipe...fry it in leftover bacon grease and you'll be in hog heaven...



Enjoy!

How to Make Bacon N Cornmeal Fried Mush

Step-by-Step

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Add the salt.

    Once boiling, whisking constantly, slowly pour in the cornmeal. You may still get a few lumps and that's okay.

    Reduce heat and simmer until thick, about 3 - 4 minutes.

    Remove from heat and stir in the bacon.
  2. Spread into a greased bread pan, or I used a bit wider dish, as long as it's thick enough to slice.

    Cover and chill overnight.
  3. Slice the mush into 1/2 inch to 1 inch slices.
  4. Coat the bottom of a skillet ( I use my iron skillet.) with bacon grease or butter. Either coat with flour or without, and fry until golden and crisp around the edges.
  5. Note: Sometimes Gram would dip in flour then brown it. Either way its yummy! I fried some with and without the flour.


    You can also make it without the bacon.
  6. Serve with butter & maple syrup if desired...so good!
