Cheddar and Corn Spoon Bread

Spoon bread is a lighter, fluffier version of corn bread.  By adding fresh corn and cheese you can make it the star of your meal.  As you look at the ingredients, you will notice it contains milk, eggs and cheese.  As a result you have protein and calcium along with your whole grains.  The most important factor is that it is delicious!  So use the last of your fresh corn and make spoon bread today.

Cheddar and Corn Spoon Bread

1/2 cup organic cornmeal
1 1/2 cup fat free milk (you can use your favorite type)
1/4 tsp. salt 
1/8 tsp. pepper
2 eggs, separated, whites in one bowl, yolks in another
1 cup fresh corn cut from the cob (approximately two ears of corn)
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Place the cornmeal, milk, salt and pepper in a pot over medium heat.  Allow to come to a boil, whisking to keep from burning.  Cook until thickened, three to five minutes.  Whisk egg yolks lightly.  Add a spoonful of the cornmeal mixture to the yolks, whisking continuously to keep yolks from cooking.  Add the yolks to the cornmeal mixture in the pot, again, whisking to keep the yolks from cooking.  Set the pot aside and allow the mixture to cook to room temperature.

Grease and dust a souffle dish or casserole dish with cornmeal. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.  stir the corn and cheese into the cooled cornmeal.  Carefully fold in the egg whites.   Pour batter into your prepared dish and bake in a preheat oven at 375 degrees for 60 minutes or until set and the top is lightly browned.  Enjoy!

Be sure to look for organic cornmeal.  If it is organically grown then it is from organic seed.  If you find one that specifically state it is GMO free, grab it.

Enjoy your week and have fun in the kitchen!
