DBF and I make our own pizza quite often. We use cornmeal on the dough, as well as when we - rather *I* - make bread. Tonight we were are the grocery store and realized it was chearper to buy a 5-lb bag of cornmeal than a 40-oz box.

So now I've got a 5 pound bag of cornmeal.
I am going to make up some "instant" cornbread muffin mixes but am not sure what else to do with it.

I'd love your ideas!

Make fried cornbread or hoe cakes. Great with a pot of peas, greens or buttered with some warm syrup.

2 cups cornmeal
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup self rising flour
1 cup water
1/4 cup bacon drippings or cooking oil (bacon drippings makes them too good, hehe)
1/2 cup milk or buttermilk
1 egg

Gently stir together all ingredients in a mixing bowl.
Drop batter with a large spoon into a hot, well greased heavy skillet or griddle.
Cook as you would for pancakes, turning to brown both sides.
Serve hot.

Quote:those are really good! i have made this several times, but use fruit as a topping.
i take frozen blueberries, etc. and put them in a pan and let them cook down some and warm up. then drizzle that over the corncakes. kids eat them up!

Use it in savory waffles to have with fried chicken for supper.

Make corn cakes, muffins and corn bread.

Mexican cornbread with rotel.

Corn fritters with real creamed corn in the recipe.

Homemade corndog - my kids loves these the best.

Lots of things to make with corn meal.
