Directions:

Stir meal into rapidly boiling milk. Cook until very thick, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.

Remove from fire and allow to cool. The mixture will be cold and very stiff.

Add well beaten eggs, salt, baking powder and melted butter. Beat with electric beater for 15 minutes. If hand beating, break the hardened cooked meal into the beaten eggs in small amounts until all is well mixed. Then beat thoroughly for 10 minutes using wooden spoon.

Pour into 2 well-greased casseroles. Bake for 30 minutes at 375. Serve from casserole by spoonfuls.


This is the Spoon Bread for which Boone Tavern is so famous. Be sure to use white cornmeal for true southern bread.
