These turned out a little dry for me.. maybe I didn't correctly measure the bacon fat. Also I bought the cheapest corn meal in the store, maybe that was the problem. I'll try again though because I think it's a good base recipe.

I really love them. I added some onion and garlic. I omitted the baking soda, because my cormeal was self rising. I also omitted the butter and used all the bacon fat. I just got only 10 not 12.
