    Charmed's Note:

    This lost bread (french toast) recipe has an interesting twist; it's made with cornbread. Although it's written with direction for using a box of corn muffin mix, feel free to substitue your own homemade cornbread (see the note at the bottom of the recipe). From the McCormick Cookbook. (Time includes making the cornbread, but not the cooling time.)

    8. 8
      Slice the loaf of cornbread into 6 even slices, then cut each slice in half diagonally, so you have 12 triangles.

      In a bowl, beat the eggs.
    10. 10
      Add the milk, sugar, nutmeg and vanilla and mix well.

      Pour enough oil into a skillet (or electric skillet) to about 2"; heat to 350.

      Soak the triangles of cornbread in the egg mixture, carefully removing the pieces to the hot oil.

      Fry for 4 to 5 minutes, until golden brown, turning once.

      Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and serve with maple syrup.

      NOTES: You can substitute your own favorite homemade cornbread recipe for the corn muffin mix (you'll need a recipe that would normally fit an 8x8" pan).
    17. 17
      Just omit the corn muffin mix, the 1/4 cup milk and the 1 egg, prepare your own recipe, then add the corn and cayenne as directed, and proceed with the recipe from that point.
