Cheesy Spoon Bread
Spoon bread can't be sliced and buttered. This pudding-like casserole is so soft and creamy, it almost has to be eaten with a spoon. Serve as a main dish or as a side dish.
3/4 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Nonfat Dry Milk
1/2 cup ALBERS Yellow Corn Meal
2 cups water
1 1/4 cups shredded cheddar cheese - divided use
3 large eggs, separated
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease 1 1/2-quart casserole dish.
- Combine dry milk and corn meal in large saucepan. Stir in water. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Remove from heat. Stir in 3/4 cup cheese, egg yolks, margarine and baking powder.
- Beat egg whites in small mixer bowl until stiff peaks form. Fold into corn meal mixture lightly but thoroughly. Pour into prepared dish. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
- Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until top is golden and filling is set. Serve warm.
