This recipe is very special to me as my mom and I worked it out together and have enjoyed many laughs in the kitchen in the process. It has the things she likes and the things I like all in one delicious slaw. Tastes great the next day too.
I am posting this recipe because it is my very favorite cheese ball ever. You are going to love it. Yes, the prep takes a little while but it is so worth it. Please follow directions carefully for success. Please do not do it with a processor as you want distinctive pieces of stuff. It is a very pretty cheese ball. Cook time is refrigeration time.
This is my mother's cornbread recipe. She uses a cast iron skillet which produces a beautiful crust. This is not sweet cakelike cornbread but authentic Southern cornbread that we eat with a big pot of beans or peas and she uses it for her Cornbread Dressing which is also posted on this site.
This is my mother's dressing recipe, finally captured on paper, lol. We use her cornbread recipe to make this as the pre-made mixes are very sweet and affect the taste of the dressing in a really not so good way.
As some of you know I have been attempting to record my mother's recipes for all eternity. This has been one of my all time comfort meals all my life. Some of the ingredients would change depending on how much $$ we had at the time. Feel free to add any seasoning you might like.
This is my favorite rice dish. We usually add a chopped hot pepper too for heat. Also, I like it best with Campbell's soup. We have tried to use cheddar cheese but it is not as good. Mom says you can make it with instant rice but I do not like it as well. If you used brown rice, increase the cooking time a bit.
Emaw is my mother and we have been on a quest to get her recipes on paper. She gets a real kick out of them being here. She is kind of bossy about the instructions but she has your best interests at heart and wants you to enjoy her recipes, lol. These are one of my favorite things she has made all my life, they are crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside, YUM!
