You probably have to cook it longer. I cook mine until it's almost beyond thick, then pour (well shove, really) it into tall straight-sided glasses or a loaf pan, all of which have been sprayed with Pam or some such thing. Refrigerate overnight, then slice into rounds, if in glasses, or even slices, if in a loaf pan.

I heat my oil (about 1/4-inch deep) in a skillet until it shimmers. Dredge my mush slices in dry cornmeal and fry on both sides until crispy and golden.

I am but figured it was just because of the long hours, then getting to the gym or pool 4 times a week afterwards. I try to grab a piece of fruit or a handful of mixed nuts mid morning. I found these peanut butter atkins bars that are a good meal on the run, only 250 calories & 17 g of protein. They are like eating a candy bar.. I always appreciate your concern Addie.

I will try it again. I have a bag of corn meal that I bought to make corn bread for Thanksgiving and I want to use it up and also have memories of my childhood.

I could do that, just like I could have sausage and eggs for dinner.

I made my corn meal mush. It is chilling in the refrigerator right now. When I cooked it, I noticed that the recipe on the package said to cook it 15-20 minutes until it reaches the desired consistancy. I realize that last time I only cooked it for about 5 minutes, until it was the consistance of cream of wheat. I thought that was "thick." This time, I went for the full 20 minutes. It was so thick it hurt my arm to stir it. Hopefully it will be solid enough to fry.

Does anyone eat scrapple? I never made it but I bought it once premade from the store and fried it up. It was pretty good. No one else would eat it. Probably because it contained the word "scrap."
