Bake up a batch of cornbread, cut a slice and pour cold milk over it in a glass.  In the South this is poor mans food but no one ever knew it because it taste like your eating like a king!
When I came into the Little family, I was used to eating Southern Buttermilk Cornbread.

Needless to say the longer I was in the family, the more I began to have a taste for sweet cornbread.

Traditionally, sweet cornbread contains equal portions of flour and yellow cornmeal with a liberal amount of sugar. 

There is one thing that has not changed since I came into the family and that is my affection for a late night snack of a cold glass of Milk and Cornbread.




The Little's Cornbread Recipe

    Ingredients:
    1 cup yellow cornmeal
    1 cup flour
    2-4 tablespoons sugar
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup whole milk (I use buttermilk)
    1 egg
    5 tablespoons bacon grease, or vegetable oil, divided

    Ingredients: Milk and Cornbread
    crumbled cornbread, enough to fill a cold glass
    milk, as much that will fill the glass

Directions:  Cornbread
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix cornmeal, flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

Add milk, egg and two tablespoons bacon grease. Stir until all is mixed well, but not too long.

Heat large iron skillet in the oven with 3 tablespoons bacon grease until grease is hot but not smoking.

Pour cornbread mixture in hot iron skillet and return to the oven.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

Cold Glass of Milk and Cornbread Recipe

Directions:  Cornbread and Milk
Take a cold glass right out of the freezer that has been chilling, then loosely crumble up cornbread (recipe above) inside of the glass to the top. Add enough cold milk to the rim. Sit back and enjoy!!!


Notes:  Your Thanksgiving Cornbread Dressing is only as good as your cornbread! Make sure you have a really good recipe for cornbread.
