Betty demonstrates how to make Cheddar Cheese Spoon Bread. The addition of Cheddar cheese makes this spoon bread special.


Yellow cornmeal 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Milk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Melted butter 2 Tablespoon
Salt 1 Teaspoon
Well beaten eggs 3
Finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Cooking oil spray 2



In a large saucepan, combine cornmeal, milk, water, butter, and salt. 

Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat. 

Place ¼ of cornmeal mixture into beaten eggs, quickly stirring to raise the temperature of the eggs. 

Add the remainder of the cornmeal mixture to the egg mixture, stirring constantly. Stir in cheese. 

Pour batter into an ovenproof dish (12-inches by 7 ½ -inches), that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray. 

Bake at 350 degrees (F) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven.


Serve immediately with butter.
