Mush for breakfast. Very Frugal Breakfast.

My dad was from a family of seven kids.  I always thought that was a lot........till we moved up here.  Lots of familys up here come from 10-12 brothers and sisters.
Now thats alot...... but big familys are wonderful.  My dad said they were raised on cornmeal for breakfast.  My grandma fixed it for the kids and what was left they put in pan and let it set up for fried mush the next morning.
My Uncle Stanley loves this with ketchup........ We love it with Maple Syrup...

We also broil ours and do not fry it..(It seems a tad healther this way....but it is better tasting fried in butter.  YUM YUM

Corn meal mush.
3 cups water
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 tesp salt

Very frugal breakfast
In a medium saucepan, heat water to boiling. Reduce heat to medium; stir in salt and cornmeal. Cook, stirring regularly, until mixture is thick.2.Spoon cornmeal mixture into a lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight.3.In the morning, melt butter in a skillet over medium high heat. Slice cornmeal mush into 1/2 inch to 1 inch wide slices. Cook in melted butter until brown.  I like mine crisp.

This is my breakfast this morning.

  1. My mother's family always had mush for breakfast. When our family gathers for a weekend reunion or camping trip, it is Mom's job to bring the mush. I don't think most of Mom's grandchildren like it but all of her kids do ! She always fixes it in a big iron skillet. Yum !!
