    I actually called my mother on the other side of the world and woke her up in the middle of the night because I HAD to have this with dinner that day, and I couldn't find a recipe like this here.

      This is perfect and just the way I remember it from my southern days. Its crusty/crunchy and soft inside. You can't beat cast iron! Thank you for posting.

      This was very nice with a lovely texture. I found it got tastier as it cooled. I will definitely make it again and next time I will add some extra sharp cheddar or diced jalapenos. Thanks for the recipe!

      Creamy and delicious! I topped it with butter and a drizzle of honey. The cast iron skillet is definitely a must. Please give me your mother's phone number in case I lose this recipe!
