I have made this very recipe since it first appeared in TOH. Our friends and family especially enjoy this Cornmeal Scrapple for breakfast or for brinner with a side of ham and eggs...perfect!
Be sure to crumble fry the sausage very well, drain off any grease, and cook and stir the cornmeal mixture it until it's very, very thick. I line a loaf pan with plastic wrap and then pour in the scrapple. Place in the fridge over night to set.
I grew up in Maine and Vermont (land of maple syrup) and scrapple was comfort food my mom would make on special mornings. I never learned how to make it myself. Thanks for the recipe!
