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!

This recipe turned out exactly like the picture. I thought it was good. I took it to a pot luck dinner. It was a very good side dish and easy to make!

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.
