    Nice flavour!

    HEIDI CARLSON-REID from Abmps, OR

    This recipe was not as popular as some of the other ones that I have made from this website. Although the flavour is very nice, the texture was not well received by my kids.

    Eh, not what I was hoping for

    Shelli Allen from PITTSBURG, KS

    My husband and I were unimpressed with this basic recipe. It was pretty bland. I think it may have been good had we spiced it up with some other ingredients. Perhaps salsa for a morning meal??

    I enjoyed this recipe. It was easy, tasted really good and was still good the next day warmed in the microwave (though it was best straight out of the oven).

    My friend in East Texas use to make this & also taught me to add ground beef. I sometimes added a can of cream style corn too. This was a quick supper (being a single mom & working late)& delicious main meal for my daughter & I.

    Family Pleaser!

    CHARLOTTE CORWIN from PRINEVILLE, OR

    I came home late from work one night to my teenage son and a housefull of his buddies - all of them hungry! This recipe was fast and easy to double, and the guys loved it. We Grilled some steaks and threw together a fresh green salad with it, but I think it would be good even as a main dish.

    kathleen johnson from COTTAGE GROVE, MN

    The comments I read about this spoon bread were so true. This was easy to make and it was very creamy. It was a good side dish with my dinner. I will make this again but maybe add some mushrooms and onions,

    Sandra Drown from AMISSVILLE, VA

    My mother and I, who love casseroles, etc.; were very pleased with this recipe. Just a nice, smooth, creamy with mild flavor. We made it again and added some hamburger and spice -- it is great alone or as a fun way to explore with other ingredients. Really enjoyed it.

    This is some of best spoon bread that I've ever had. Easy to make & just the right amount of cheese. It goes well with chicken also. Don't forget the tabasco sauce!

    The taste is great, but it needs more salt!

    Ana Carolina Cantilano from Fort Wayne, IN

    This bread is very easy to make but it needs to have either salt or some other ingredient to give more flavor to it. Next time, I will add more spices and maybe red bell peppers to the recipe.

    I found this recipe to be pretty good but next time I make it it will be even better! This is a good base recipe which leaves lots of options for variations. Next time I will add: different cheeses, corn, salsa or other variations.

    super spoon bread!!

    BETH HARLAN from DAPHNE, AL

    DELICIOUS!!! I have never had spoon bread with the cheese. We eat cheese grits all the time here in AL as a side dish and we eat spoon bread too. But the addition of the cheese to the spoon bread is the best of both foods!!!

    Linda LeDoux from Kansas City, KS

    I always heard of spoon bread but never tried it until now. It is deliteful. I like the cheese anyway. My daughter likes to eat it by itself. What a good idea of the cheese. It is easy to make too.

    You have to try this

    Charlene Bayless from PORTLAND, OR

    I have alway's wondered about spoon bread, but never tried it until now. Being a corn meal and cheese lover this was right up my alley. It was easy to make and oh so good. My husband also loved it. You can bet we will be having this again soon, and I will be passing the recipe along to friends and family.

    Very Different...and Yummy

    KIM MCCARTHY from TUCSON, AZ

    I made this Spoon Bread for the first time on our first cool evening this year. I served it with crispy oven fried chicken and a green salad. The soft and creamy texture mixed with the warm crispness of the chicken and the cool crunch of the green salad was just wonderful. I look forward to making it again.

    Very tasty Spoon Bread

    Midge Foley from ENFIELD, CT

    My son loved this spoon bread. I used pepper jack cheese instead of the regular cheddar cheese. I think it still needs something so I put some salsa on the table. (My son used ketchup instead!)

    Cheesy Spoon Bread

    Lydia Sepe from GREENDALE, WI

    Last week I made a family favorite meat loaf and was looking for something different to serve with it. I remembered this recipe and tried it. Well, the spoon bread disappeared faster than my family's favorite meatloaf! The next time I made this spoonbread, it was for supper with scrambled eggs & bacon. My husband and teenage sons always loved having "breakfast for dinner" and this dish is perfect!

    Melts in your mouth

    Sharron Linehan from

    As the recipe states, you eat this with a spoon. The aroma is amazing as it cooks, as well as the end results. I made this as a side dish, my family ate this as the main meal. If you can serve a quiche as a main course, you can serve this dish. Easy and tasty.

    Cheesy (Pudding) Bread

    A.L.R. from WEST PALM BEACH, FL

    My family and I enjoyed this dish very much. I did not think it would come out correctly since I have a bad history making anything were I have to add baking powered. I think I will add herbs and spices to this dish in the future.

    Pretty Good

    Kelly Tuttle from Carrollton, TX

    I made this last night. I thought it was just ok, but my husband loved it. I just like bread that is more like bread. This is more like a quiche. My husband absolutely loved it, so I will make it again, but just because of my own personal taste, I didn't fall in love with it.

    Spiced-up Spoon Bread

    Linda Leigh from Coeur d Alene, ID

    This spoon bread was really good. However, my husband & I love spicy food so I added green chile and some pepper jack cheese to the recipe. It was a hit!
