Growing up I watched my Grandfather eat this quite regularly for breakfast and lunch, it was the original fast food, Cajun style.  He sure could cook for a man (while we are being sexist):


COUCHE COUCHE
 

A very old-time, traditional breakfast, couche couche is the Cajun version of fried cornmeal mush.
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup water
Heat the oil in a heavy pot or preferable a cast iron dutch oven. Mix the dry ingredients, then add the milk and water. Pour the batter into the hot oil, and allow a crust to form on the bottom before stirring. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally; cook for about 15 minutes.
Serve in bowls with milk and sugar, like a hot cereal.
