You have a winner with this. Beyond tasty, an indescribable tastiness. Crispy on the outside, warmed and softened in the middle. We have a bit left for next Saturday morning, however; my Dad, Dennis and myself pretty much devoured this right on the spot. I made this the evening before, it was easy enough to put together, and followed the recipe exactly. I did however; use the food processor to blend everything up and made a pork/cornmeal, thyme and broth gruel. Perfect. I let it rest in fridge overnight, and was able to cut it easily into 1/4 " slices. I fried it up with some (don't tell anyone!) bacon grease and a bit of oil for the sizzle. Outstanding Chef Shadows... love, love recipes such as this. Thank you!
