Put away your bread knife! There's no slicing this Cheesy Spoon Bread; just spoon it out! We added a little kick to this spoon bread to add a zesty new flavor to a traditional Southern favorite.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup fine white cornmeal (see Note)
  • 1 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Mexican cheese blend

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 5- inch loaf pan with cooking spray
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, combine cornmeal, water, butter, baking powder, salt, and pepper for 30 seconds. Add eggs and milk and beat 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Pour half of batter into a prepared loaf pan. Spoon chilies and 2/3 cup of cheese evenly over batter. Pour remaining batter over cheese and top with remaining 1/3 cup cheese.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm.

Well here I go again with another Mr. Food recipe. Prepared it according to directions. I cooked in an 8 x 8. Turned out bad. Ingredients separated. Cornmeal cooked hard on the bottom. Eggs were custard style on top. Did not like .

Hmmm, I made this and it turned out fine. I'm wondering if it isn't your oven? If it's not getting as hot as the temp you set it at or if it's uneven. Do you have any trouble with making cakes? Do you usual have to bake things longer than the cooking time listed on the recipe?

This is delicious. I have also made it with salsa with great results. Love spoon bread no matter how it is made.
