Skillet corn pone

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Yellow cornmeal
2 tablespoons White cornmeal
½ cup Bacon drippings
1 cup Milk
½ teaspoon Salt

Preparation time: 5 minutes Cooking time: about 25 minutes Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Pour about half the bacon grease into a 10-inch cast-iron skillet, place in the oven and heat until fat just barely starts to smoke.

In a medium bowl, mix cornmeal, milk and salt. Pour batter into hot skillet and bake 12 minutes. Remove skillet from oven, pour the rest of the bacon fat on top and return to oven about 13 minutes. ("Some crumbled bacon on top," Walters says, "wouldn't hurt, either.") Per serving: 288 calories, 22 grams fat, 24 milligrams cholesterol, 226 milligrams sodium.
