Food for Friday

What was the name of the restaurant chain that served those drop biscuits that were ever so slightly sweet- and corn-tasting?  I can’t remember the name, but I may have come across their recipe!  Browsing through the Tennessee Hometown Cookbook, I found this one ~ really easy to prepare, and, if they are the biscuits I remember, they are really tasty.

Tennessee Hometown Cookbook

Sweet Creamed Corn Spoonbread

2 C self-rising flour
1 can cream-style corn
1 T sugar or brown sugar
2 eggs
3/4 C milk

Preheat oven to 400 degrees; lightly grease a cookie sheet.  Mix flour, corn, and sugar together.  In a separate bowl, beat eggs, then add milk.  Mix well;  add to corn mixture.  Stir just until moistened.  Drop by tablespoons onto cookie sheet; bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.

I think this would be a good one to practice with a child that’s learning to bake, it’s so easy.

I’m now going to share a friend’s recipe for a topping that might be good with these.  It will sound a little strange, but I have had this topping myself and it is ~ strangely delicious!

Jezebel Topping

15 oz apple jelly
15 oz apricot preserves
1 oz can dry mustard
1 jar horse radish, anything but the creamy style – look in the refrigerator section at the market
1 t coarse ground pepper

Mix well.  Spread on something edible.

It’s got that whole sweet-salty thing going on, and I have mad love for that sort of taste.

As I look through the Tennessee Hometown Cookbook, I am impressed with how easy and tasty all the recipes seem to be.  There might be several ingredients, but the instructions are usually no more than 5 or 6 lines long.  Also, the editors have included recipes and photographs from every corner of the state, Memphis to Chattanooga and all points inbetween.

The 9th Annual Saddle Up! Celebration and the 4th Annual Western Jamboree: Cowboys & Indians are happening this weekend here in Pigeon Forge ~ I’ll bet a cowboy has cooked biscuits very similar to these on the trail at one time or another.

Enjoy your weekend!
