This satisfying side dish resembles an old-fashioned spoon bread with zip. My family and friends agree this recipe really dresses up plain corn. It's a convenient dish to transport to a potluck. — Laura Kadlec, Maiden Rock, Wisconsin

"This became a family favorite after I made it the first time when it was first published years ago. I take it to just about every get together because it travels so well. Tonight I am making it for my family, just because!"

"I would make this again if I needed a cornbread side dish. I was hoping it would be more like a pudding or at least a spoon bread. It worked out ok."
