    Manami's Note:

    No matter what meal you serve it for, this is bound to become a classic on your table. Spoon Bread has always been part of our family fare dating back to my grandfather. Hope you like it! UPDATE: : 09/09/09 Nurse Janey just let me know that I didn't give credit where credit was due - it was to Cooking Light Magazine - 2006 edition. I am so sorry that this wasn't caught sooner. :(

      It took more time to prep than indicated, (and less to cook, if I had left it in 50 minutes it would have been completely burned. I took it out of the oven at about 35 minutes) but SO GOOD! I went back for seconds & our friend had fourths!

      This is a variation of Ham and 2 cheese spoon bread, in the Jan. 2006 "Cooking Light". I was surfing to add that recipe and found this. There can be many variations of the basic recipe -- mostly from South-eastern cooks.
