This recipe was OK. I think with some tweaking to one's personal tastes it could be even better. next time I plan on doubling the recipe (to make the casserole a bit more substantial), adding some green peppers to the cornmeal mix and topping with sour cream and chopped green onions. Definite potential, thanks for sharing!
