This is like a religion in my family. You do not mess with it and everyone is a part of making it. This is a combination of corn and white bread. It is simple, but so deliscious. This is a traditional recipe that has been handed down through at least four generations. All amounts given are very approximate and subject to change according to your taste.

  3. Add onions, celery, salt, pepper and sage.
