Libby’s Recipes: Sue’s Spoonbread

This recipe is from my sister Judy and originally came to her from our late Aunt Sue Mac.

Sue’s Spoonbread
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) chicken broth
1/2 cup quick grits (cooks in 5 minutes-not instant)
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
1 cup buttermilk
3 eggs lightly beaten
1 cup yellow cornmeal
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt.
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper, optional
1 pound sausage (crumbled, cooked and drained)

Bring both to a boil in a large pot. Stir in grits, reduce heat and simmer 5-7 minutes. Stir in butter and next 3 ingredients. Stir into grits mixture. Add cooked sausage. Pour into greased 11×7 casserole. Bake 45 minutes at 425 degrees—until light brown. Cut in squares and serve with syrup.
I realize this is longer than most of my recipes, but Judy assures me it is worth it.
Happy Trails!
