Super quick and easy to make. Add some lard or bacon grease to the oil to get that extra bacon flavor and bacon bits!

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Prepare a cast iron pan, adding Vegetable Oil (to taste) until half the pan is full. Add Lard (2 tablespoon) if using.
Step 2
In a large mixing bowl, add Cornmeal (2 cup), Granulated Sugar (2 tablespoon), and Salt (1 1/2 teaspoon).
Step 3
Whisk everything together.
Step 4
While whisking, add Water (2 1/2 cup).
Step 5
Add enough water to make a creamy batter. You may not finish the water, or you may need more. The cornmeal mixture comes together enough to spoon. Start heating your oil to about 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Step 6
Prepare a mixing bowl with warm tap water. Spoon hot cornmeal mixture in your hands that have been dipped in hot/warm water and then shape them into logs or patties. Gently place in the hot oil.
Step 7
Fry each in hot oil, turning once, until crisp and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels.
Step 8
If you prefer it sweet, top with some sugar and enjoy!
