  • 2 cups fine ground white cornmeal

  3. Dip by tablespoonful and place into hot grease in skillet.
  4. Cook on medium heat until browned. Turn and brown other side.
  5. Remove from grease and place on paper towels to drain.
  6. Sprinkle salt on cornbread. Serve hot.
  7. It's crispy and yummy. Enjoy!

You can freeze the leftover corn bread and heat it for another meal. Prepare for freezing so the pieces will not stick together when frozen.
To heat, place the frozen pieces on a baking pan and set in a cold oven. Set temperature control on 400 degrees F and bake for approximately 10-15 minutes. When you see the grease bubbling around the edges, it is hot and ready to serve.
