It was quick and easy, although the family didn't care for it too much Not sure why. We did use 12 ounce cornmeal as someone else suggested.
Quick, easy, and very tasty! The only change I made was to use a 12-ounce cornbread mix rather than 6 ounces, and it turned out just fine. We'll make this again.
