Some people use plain meal, some use plain flour. I like the mixture of both, but however you coat them, they turn out just plain good. Ask any farmer, they will tell you.

I (and I alone since no one else in my family likes these!) really enjoyed these. I did reduce the cornmeal a little bit, but I enjoyed the flavor. Thanks for posting!

Loved this recipe...used Tony's seasoning instead of plain salt.

This recipe was exactly what I was looking for. I have one child allergic to egg so this was a nice no egg version. I had not made it with cornmeal before so I was hapily suprised with the added crunch it offers.. the kids loved it. Thanks.
