Recipe for My Country Fried Corn Bread

   Requested Recipe for My Country Fried Corn Bread ;o)
I use "House Autry" (yellow Self-Rising corn meal mix)  if you can't get this brand, I think any self rising corn bread mix will suffice (or add some baking powder like 1 tsp. to a cup + 1/4 tsp baking soda)
(The following is written on the bag of corn meal i buy)
    Recipe for Basic Corn Bread, Corn Sticks or Muffins
1 1/2 cup House -Autry yellow self-Rising Corn Meal Mix
1 Egg
1 Tablespoon oil
 1 Cup milk
"Ginny's  Kick"
 Then I add my own kick to it....One Small diced Jalapeno pepper seeds removed.
One half to one whole onion...(I like the small white sweet ones)
And  if I have it, I will add finely chopped (or finely ground
country ham or bacon that I've fried to flavor my greens. I put some cooking oil in my iron frying pan and wait until it's good and hot and add spoonfuls of the mix, when she bubbles on top like a pancake, then I turn it over to the other side to finish cooking, don't sit down they will burn easily...Enjoy
The Autry recipe says: Preheat oven to 425 Spray pan with cooking spray measure corn meal into mixing bowl Beat together egg, oil and milk. Stir into corn meal until thoroughly mixed. Pour into greased muffin , corn stick or 8-inch square baking pan. Bake 15-20 minutes or until done..makes about 9 servings. Enjoy

Ginny, from reading your cornbread recipe and the added kick, I see that you enjoy spicing up your foods - I was thinking about the cheese you recently made which also had a kick :-)

Ladies, I grew up eating good food that had kicks to it and things without a kick leaves no memory :o)
Remember onion and or garlic is good for the system!
