Corn Toasties

Short and sweet, this one.

We saw these corn toasties at A Good Appetite and promptly forwarded the recipe to CSC, our resident baker. And very promptly afterwards, she made them!

This is Kat's recipe, and the recipe can be found here.

Between two kiddies and me, these corn toasties didn't even last a day! To be exact, they lasted a maximum of 2 hours.

I can't help myself and my cornmeal-love.

Great on its own, and it could be either eaten as a sweet snack or used in a savory dish. (We were thinking that we could pair it with some sort of Mexican-inspired braised pork dish, for example. Or chili, hehe.) Delicious and versatile.

I [heart] cornmeal.

After I wrote up this post, I went to the kitchen and discovered that CSC has made a new batch of this! Wow! She must be psychic.

  1. Mmmm.... looks so simple yet the possibilities in using these is endless!!

  2. Oh my you guys went to town on these! Next time throw a few fresh or frozen blueberries in before cooking, they are even better if you can believe it! Glad you enjoyed the recipe.

  3. Oh wow these look amazing and crunchy, I love that!

  4. I've been wanting to make these since I saw them on Kat's blog. Yours look just as good!

  5. Yum! I'm imagining these with some pulled pork now.

  6. I'm sure there is a cornmeal's anonymous group out there for you.

  7. Oh nice, can CSC make some for me? Pleeeeaseeee! :-p

  8. Yup - this is looking mighty good. You can spruce it up a bit - maybe parsley, garlic, and parm in the batter. Or even smoked cheese and then toast it - yup, the possibilities are definitely endless.


  9. You are now officially my new best friend who I adore beyond words for making these and sharing the recipe. Having grown up on corn toasties and being deprived of them for decades has been sad to say the least. This is an awesome and nostalgic post, thanks a bunch.

  10. kat:
    super-super good. =D

    Haha... but I don't want to be "helped" out of my cornmeal addiction.

    Haha, sure -- you just have to compete with her 3 kiddies for her attention.

    We actually didn't know what corn toasties were! This was the first time we've ever had them. =)Certainly won't be the last.

  11. Yum! Such a tall delicious stack!

    I'm loving cornmeal at the moment.

  12. This is a new one for me. I'm afraid I'll just have to try them--when the weather here cools off.

  13. wowww crispy goodness! i can imagine this with herbed cream cheese or nutella! wowww

  14. We've been having this lately -- (Yes, CSC made them again... must be the constant "whining" from us. teehee.) -- with cervelat salami! Just plain old Freybe cervelat salami. SOOOOO good!
