    littleturtle's Note:

    A nice updated version of old-fachioned, southern-fried cornmeal mush. Flavored cornmeal mixed with pecans, cut into rounds and sauteed. A nice change of pace from rice or potatoes; goes nicely with chicken, turkey, beans or chile.

      So satisfying. Very attractive golden rounds that we thoroughly enjoyed, Dh plain as a starter and I with a puddle of maple syrup as dessert. Reminded us both of "home". We'll be having these again.
