Corn Meal Uses - suggestions please?

I bought a bag of Instant Corn Masa Mix and made the creamiest polenta I ever had. Since I bought this product for the polenta only, I am curious what others use corn meal for. This product is a fine mix like flour, unlike other corn meal products I have purchased.

When Paul makes pizza dough we sometimes

dust the cookie sheets with corn meal before laying the dough on them but, other than that we don't use it.

You can just keep it in the freezer until you want polenta again.

Season it and use it for fish filets.

I thought of the usual topical uses such as for fish and other meats. What I really wanted was to "make" something like a bread. I have been searching the web and so far I have some lawn fertilizer and a couple facial mixtures - LOL@me

I want to second using it for pizza dough, it's a very ritch and protein filled flour so it gives great results.

Have you ever made cornbread? Try it with a little more butter than usual, some diced peppers and cheese, it's such good stuff.

My mother would make it and mix with pork sausage, and put it into a loaf pan ty set. When done, she would slice 2/3 inch thick or so, lightly flour and fry in a skilled until brown and crunchy on the outside, serve with real maple syrup, mmmmm. It was called scrapple adn I believe it is a southern dish, not certain, but really good.
