- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups boiling water
- 1 1/4 cups white cornmeal
- Vegetable oil or bacon drippings, enough to fill skillet 1-inch deep
Add the salt to the boiling water; gradually sift in the cornmeal. Stir to combine. Cool the mixture in the refrigerator for 20 minutes. Shape into balls and then flatten to form patties about 2-inches across. Heat the vegetable oil or bacon drippings in a skillet. Fry patties until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Turn once. Drain and serve hot.
