What You'll Need

Depending on what you add to the mix, this could easily become a dish to serve for breakfast or dinner. With the cost of food now a days it is good to find a recipe that calls for inexpensive ingredients that will feed and fill and growing family. I hope they like it.

This is a recipe that I have never heard of before. I guess if I had to relate it to a recipe that I know I would say it is like the johnny cake here in the south. The word mush kind of puts me off from it but the end result does not look like mush.

cook sausage or hamburger, onion, veggies of choice pour into corn mixture mix well , cook and have a quick meal

Great recipe! Born during the latter part of WW11, and due to all the rationing, my Mother fixed a lot of this! Brings back a lot of memories and will be fixing it more often.

Peanut Butter & Banana French Toast Bake

This recipe was inspired by Elvis, who had a love for all things peanut butter, bananas, and bacon! We may not be able to perform rock 'n' roll like our good friend, Terry Buchwald, but our Peanut Butter Banana French Toast Bake is our way of paying tribute to the King.
