    Corn Pone

    1 review

    My husband's grandmother gave me this corn pone recipe years ago. She always made it with bacon drippings, which is heavenly, but if you're trying to be a little more health-conscious, you can use canola oil or a combination of the two. I cook it until it's crisp almost all the way through. It's delicious hot, warm or cold. —Tina Quiggle, LaGrange, Georgia
