Milk & Bread

An Old Southern Favorite!

Crumble left over corn bread into a tall glass. Fill glass with "sweet" milk!

Enjoy!!!

When I was a young lad, visiting my Grandma, she would pour me a bowl full of milk, then break white bread into it and sprinkle all with sugar. I loved it. My wife thinks it's disgusting.

I also used to love dipping cake doughnuts into milk, along with any kid of cookie. Milk is my favorite beverage and goes well with nearly everything.

I have to admit though, the cornbread and milk idea sounds like it would be so much better than the bread and milk.

Ever try milk and your wife's toes? Me either. Just thought I'd throw that out and see who bites.

That really does sound, although I never would have thought of it!

Does anyone have a good corn bread recipe?

Thanks!

I bet Uncle Bob does. Only problem is corn seems to have less nutritional value than wheat.

I'd forgotten about doing this, Uncle Bob. My daddy liked to eat cornbread in milk, too. He also enjoyed crumbling saltine crackers in a glass of buttermilk for a bedtime snack. I could never get my taste buds wrapped around that one though.

My grandpa used to eat both. I've never tried it with the cornbread, but I love crackers and milk. It's just a comfort thing, I guess.

I've never heard of the Milk & Saltines combo.....Milk and "Light bread" was used only if there was no leftover cornbread. Here, Cornbread rules!!!!!

Hey Miss Lee

"Sweet Milk" (I think) was/is a term used in the South, and in other areas too maybe, to describe regular milk as opposed to buttermilk. I think it comes from the era when people were milking cows, churning butter, making there own buttermilk etc. Even young folks like me still use the term from time to time. I grew up hearing the term used by my grandmother, and mother!

When I was a kid, my dad's favorite thing was crumbling up cornbread into a glass of buttermilk. He was raised in OK so maybe it was a regional thing with the buttermilk.
