Wonderful. It has been a long time since I had spoon bread, and this recipe tasted as I remember. So good!! I made it without changing anything, because the simple way is best. It came out of the oven looking so beautiful. Lots of butter, and ahhhhh! Thanks, Bev for this wonderful recipe to add to my T&T cookbook.

I regret trying this recipe. Ever since my roommate tasted this with homemade kumquat preserves, I have to keep making more! Too good...
