Paul’s Jalapeno Spoon Bread

Some Like It Hot!

Remember how Big Red’s used to serve their hamburgers with a jalapeno on top? That is how I like to serve a Corning dish full of this corn bread. It is a nice way to warn people that all those green specs aren’t green onions. Watch out! A square of this is likely to make you run, not walk, to the keg for another pint of beer.

People like this dish because it is so moist, a little sweet and pleasantly spicy. Great party food.

1 C Yellow Corn Meal

1 C Flour

¼ C sugar

1 TBSP baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 C milk

1 (15oz) can creamed corn

1/3 C melted butter

1 egg  lightly beaten

1 or 2 jalapenos minced


Combine dry ingredients in one bowl, wet ingredients in another. Add wet ingredients to dry. Mix quickly and as little as possible. Pour into a buttered, 8″ pan.

Bake in a preheated, 400° oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until a tooth pick may be inserted and withdrawn clean.
