This was good, although I'd not make it as a 'stand-alone.' It'd be real good at breakfast with bacon, ham or sausage along with it, or as a pot-luck type of dish. I had a little trouble with the preparation. The directions say to bring the liquids to a boil and then stir constantly, over a low heat. Maybe it's just me because I have never been able to bring liquids to a boil, and keep them boiling while stirring, over a low heat. Next time I'll certainly make it the day before and let it sit in the fridge overnight, rather than doing it the same day. Thanks.
This was very good indeed. I too would fix this to go along with a ham or sausage dinner as a companion dish or take it to a "bring a dish to pass' event. In fact I think I'll make this to go along with a ham cookout I'll be having the end of the month. Everyone likes deviled eggs and this I think will do very nicely. Thanks for sharing this.
