This is a breakfast staple in Louisiana.

  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 cups Self Rising corn meal

Place oil in a 10-inch cast iron skillet and heat until the oil just starts to smoke. In a medium bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour batter into the pan and heat until a crust forms. Lower heat to simmer. Cook, covered, for 15 minutes. Serve as a cereal with milk and sugar or drizzle with cane.
