 Ingredients List

  • 2 c White corn meal
  • 1 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 ts Baking powder
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 4 tb Butter
  • 2 lg Eggs
  • Black pepper, fresh ground
  • 3 c Milk


2 tb Butter
2 tb All-purpose flour
1 1/2 c Heavy cream
1/4 lb Fontina cheese
2 Egg yolks
1/2 c Tomato puree
1/2 ts Salt
2 Grindings black pepper
2 ds Tabasco (optional)

Combine the corn meal, flour, baking powder, black pepper and salt in a
bowl. In a small skillet melt the butter. Beat the eggs and add to the corn
meal with the melted butter. Mix well. Gradually add the milk, stirring
constantly until the batter is the thickness of heavy cream. Heat the
griddle, grease it, and pour out the batter by spoonfuls to make cakes
about two inches in diameter. Turn once so they are nicely browned on both
sides. Add more milk to the batter if it begins to thicken. Serve as a side
dish with plenty of butter. THE SAUCE: Melt the butter in a saucepan and
add the flour. Cook over a low heat for 3 minutes and gradually add the
warm cream, stirring constantly. Cube the cheese and add to the sauce, a
few cubes at a time, until it is all melted. Remove from heat. Beat the egg
yolks with a little of the sauce and then add to the saucepan. Stir well
over low heat until the sauce has thickened. Add the tomato puree and stir
until heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Add the Tabasco if you
like a hotter sauce.
