This is my husband's treasured recipe of his mom's for corn meal mush. You can cook and then serve with salt and pepper or jelly or syrup.

My Grandma would make this, adding crispy crumbled bacon to the cooked mush before pouring it into the loaf pan(s)...then she'd fry the slices in bacon grease, and top with butter and maple goood on cold winter mornings....sometimes she'd fry the slices and top each with a fried egg...Thanks for the trip down memory lane!
