Old Fashioned Cornmeal Mush. A simple comfort food with endless variations. Great breakfast option for those with food allergies! Gluten-free, dairy-free & egg-free.
- 3 cups boiling water just simmering
- 1 cup corn meal
- 1 cup cold water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp butter, bacon fat or oil
Mix cornmeal with cold water.
CAREFULLY add cornmeal to water that's just simmering. (Add it to boiling water and it will bubble and explode everywhere)
Reduce heat, cover and simmer over low heat for an hour, stirring often.
Pour into lightly sprayed/greased dish ( 8x8 or 9x9 ) and let cool in fridge for a few hours.
Cut into slices and pan fry in butter or oil over low heat until just lightly golden on both sides - about 10 minutes each side. Serve with maple syrup.
