Spoon Bread

Ingredients for 6 Servings

  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup yellow corn meal
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 egg yolks, well beaten
  • 2 egg whites, stiffly beaten


  1. Add shortening to boiling water, add salt, and slowly stir in corn meal.
  2. Cook until thick, stirring constantly to prevent lumping and burning.
  3. Add brown sugar for better flavor, and stir until sugar dissolves.
  4. Add milk to well-beaten egg yolks, mix well, and stir into hot corn meal until well blended.
  5. Beat egg whites until just stiff enough to stand in peaks, but not until dry.
  6. Fold egg whites into corn meal mixture.


  1. Turn into greased 2-quart casserole and bake in moderately hot oven (425° F.) about 30 to 35 minutes, just until top is well browned.
  2. Serve with a spoon from the same dish in which it is baked.
