Lady Bird Johnson's Spoon Bread

Lady Bird Johnson’s Spoon Bread

Spoon bread was a favorite dish with Lyndon Johnson’s mother, which
she passed on to his wife, Lady Bird. With a fruit salad or a green
salad and meat, it makes a perfect lunch.


3 cups milk
3 eggs
1 cup cornmeal
Butter (the size of a walnut)
3 level teaspoons baking powder
1 level teaspoon salt

Stir cornmeal into 2 cups of milk and let mixture come to a boil,
making a mush. Remove from heat and add balance of milk and well-
beaten eggs. Stir in salt, baking powder and melted butter. Bake in 2-
quart greased casserole for 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.

Serves 8.
