- 1 1⁄2 cups cornmeal
- 16 ounces cottage cheese (I would use small-curd)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup chopped scallion
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- 1⁄4 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme
- 4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (about 1 cup)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon chopped scallion (to garnish)
- Preheat oven to 400 deg. Grease an 8" square baking dish.
- In a large bowl combine all the ingredients except the scallions for garnish.
- Pour into the baking dish and spread out evenly.
- Bake until lightly browned and an inserted toothpick comes out clean, about 35 minutes.
- Garnish with the remaining scallion and serve warm.
I loved this bread. It is nothing like southern cornbread that we are used to in the US. I just loved the flavors of the spices.
This was fantastic! While the stew was only eaten half, the bread had completely gone after dinner LOL So, no danger of drying out. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing!
