|Corn spoon bread goes by a number of names, but it's basically a souffle made of cornmeal, corn, sour cream, milk, eggs and butter. A wonderful side dish for any holiday.|
Corn Spoon BreadCorn Spoon Bread, is an old fashioned dish that has been around since the establishment of the colonies, and goes by many names these days - Corn Casserole, Corn Pudding, Corn Spoon Bread, to name a few - though all of those actually started out as completely separate recipes. Pretty much they all now represent a single dish similar to this one.
And, like regular cornbread, there are a multitude of variations, some with milk, some without, some with a few eggs, some with a lot, some with sugar, some with no sugar. We simplify this dish a little bit by using a boxed Jiffy mix, though I've also included a cornmeal substitute for you. This dish is very souffle like, sort of like a fluffy cornbread, people who love all things corn just love this dish. It is a perfect holiday side dish, but once you add it, expect that it will be asked for year after year.
Here's how to make it.
