That looks delicious, Raine. I've never tried a spoonbread.

Neither have I - but it sure looks like it would be a good side dish for chili!

That looks absolutely (drool) wonderful. I have made spoonbread before but either I was a nitwit or the recipe was. Was more like mush than spoonbread I have been served. Nobody in family liked it. It was just a plain cornmeal one. Guess I will have to try that one out. Think....spicy chili and soothing spoonbread to cut the heat. Ummmmmmmm, too bad I can't eat spicy foods.

I've never had spoon bread...
do they call it that because you have to eat it with a spoon? Is it softer or more crumbly than regular corn bread??

The spoonbread I had was a little moister than dressing. I am not sure why they call it spoonbread except that you always see it being dished up with a spoon as would be too soupy to use a fork. I enjoyed it, but what I ate was just a corn meal type of spoonbread and wasn't anything fancy. :)

CHEESY SPOONBREAD!! Sweet. I have never tried cheesey spoonbread but spoonbread is readily available in Kentucky. I remember it mostly around the holidays but never with cheese. May have to make a stuffed chicken with potatoes and some cheesy spoonbread. Thanks for the recipe.

Made the spoonbread and it was excellent. My wife (native Chicagoan) had never tried spoonbread and she loved it as well. The only change I made was I added about a cup of roasted corn kernels. I am interested to make it again with chipotle peppers or maybe with Blue cheese.

Thanks for sharing. I am going to call my Mom in Kentucky and see if she will part with her recipe. It may take a while because she will mail it to me, but I will share if I get it.
