I think days of bitter cold deserve warm breakfasts involving lots of butter. Below is one such start to the day.
- 1 C water
- 3 heaped tablespoons cornmeal
- 1 pat butter (be as scant or as generous as you like)
- Salt, to taste
Boil the water. When at a full boil, whisk in the cornmeal, and cook until thick. It should only take a minute or so. Take off the heat, add your salt and butter, and stir until the butter melts. This serves one. If you are more of a sweet breakfast eater, feel free to swap out the salt with a sprinkling of sugar on top. Or a drizzle of maple syrup.
*I don’t know if this is how my Grandma made it, but it reminds me of her every time. More comfort for the chill.
