Fried Cornmeal Mush

Day 8 of the 8 week #PantryChallenge

Breakfast for dinner! I wanted something a little lighter because I know I’m going to double in mass tomorrow. Did anyone else grow up eating Fried Cornmeal Mush with maple syrup and fried eggs? 

 The whole pan set me back 20¢ and it makes 4-5 servings. I make it the night before, then toss it in flour and briefly pan fry it. It’s one of my favorite struggle meals! 

 And yes, I eat baked beans on toast. 😆

  • 1 1/2 cups Water; room temp
  • 1/2 cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup Water; cold
  • Pinch of Salt
  • Pinch of Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Nutmeg

  1. Bring a pot with the room temperature water to a boil and season with the salt.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the cornmeal, cold water, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pour the cornmeal mixture into the boiling water and reduce the heat to medium-low; stirring constantly until thickened.
  3. Line a baking sheet or loaf pan with parchment paper and scoop in the corn mixture; spreading so it’s even. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge from 20 minutes to overnight.
  4. The next morning, heat a skillet over medium heat and add a pad of butter or bacon grease. Slice the Mush into 1/2” strips, toss lightly in flour and fry until golden brown and heated through. Plate and add a drizzle of maple syrup.
  5. Enjoy!
