Spoon Bread Recipe

Publisher Photo
This recipe has been in my family for over 100 years. My great-grandmother first made it in her one-room log cabin over an open fire! This recipe is still a family favorite as a side dish with pork and fresh vegetables. Add 1/2 cup of sugar or honey to turn it into a wonderful, old-fashioned dessert.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 25, 2011

I had never made spoon bread before, but after trying some at a church dinner was eager to give it a go. Unfortunately, I didn't find this recipe to be that enjoyable. To me, it had a strong salty flavor and not much else. I ended up adding melted cheese on top to get people to eat it, but it still wasn't too popular. I'll be trying other spoon bread recipes.

No true southerner could not love this.

For better-than-good drizzle each serving with molasses.
