Lazy Day.....








Hi Everybody...
Hope you all had a Kick Ass Week-End!!
As a child, one of my favorite treats that my Granny made was Fried Mush.
I think it's funny that with all of the Latin American fusion in today's culture, corn meal mush is now called...Polenta!
Sounds like a Spanish Hooker!
The night before you want Fried Mush for breakfast...
In a sauce pan, boil 3 cups of water. When it comes to a boil add 1 cup of yellow corn meal. When it starts to bubble, stir with a wisk, cover, and let sit for 15 minutes. Pour into a bread tin, cover with plastic wrap, and set in fridge overnight. In the morning turn the tin upside down, the hardened mush should pop right out. Slice into 1/2 inch slices, dredge lightly in flour, fry in your oil or grease of choice on medium heat about 8 minutes on each side or until Golden Brown.
Serve with butter and maple syrup...TO DIE FOR!!!!
I made bacon and eggs with mine!
I have a short work week coming up...details later.
Enjoy YOUR week...
Peace...!!!

I think I'd just stick with the bacon and eggs, thank you very much. :)

A short work week? What a blessing. I remember how happy the short weeks made me feel. Enjoy!

polenta.. I agree with the spanish hooker, but it could also be a polish one?? :)

Hobbes said...

I thought Polenta was Italian. I made it once, and the recipe called for Cream of Wheat, I think, so the grain was different, though it was the same idea as fried mush. Enjoy.

Nice, I´ve never had that! I´ll have to try it some time.

sorry dude don't like it when it is called polenta and changing the name to mush does nothing for its appeal.

Akelamalu said...

I'm not a fan of polenta.

Hobbes...
Polenta is Italian in origin, but it still sounds like a Spanish Hooker!

Joy...?
Polish Hooker?
Putana?

Jessie said...

i've only had fried mush once. and that was many, many years ago. but it was delish!!!! i'm going to give it a try ... maybe this weekend.

thanks for the reminder!

kick it G-Man!!!

Quixote said...

you can buy the polenta already done in health food/organic/natural markets ... in their reefer section. So ya just chop it into slices and fry it. =)

Polenta's great in tamale pie as the foundation or topping, depending which side you want up.

MWAH G-daddy!
DA

Corn meal seems to be coming into its own...

When I was knee-high to a grasshopper down south, we had something similar, y'all. Daddy'd cook up a mess o' grits, pack them in a square container and refrigerate overnight till hard. In the mornin' he'd slice them, fry them up in a skillet, and serve them with maple syrup. Yummy!

lime said...

it's kind of similar to a kenyan thing i make called ugali. just boil water and pour in the cornmeal and stir it until it doesn't stir any more then flatten it all out, put a lid on and let it steam until the bottom smells kind of burnt. i'll tell you my favorite part is picking the dried crust out of the pan once it cools. yeah i'm weird but you already knew that.

MomsJournal said...

Oh I've made that. I learned how through Alton Brown. I thought that's what they called 'grits' in the south, no?
