Don't know much about cornbread in Memphis, but if this anonymous visitor has not yet sampled the glory that is Gus's Fried Chicken yet, implore them to do so.

I myself first tasted Gus's this past weekend, and now its spicy juiciness has consumes my very soul.

downtown, i presume?

since they opened the downtown location, i haven't taken the 45 minute trip to the original out in mason. despite the frequently crappy music on the jukebox, i like the front st location a lot. i'd be interested to compare.

but no cornbread there.

Honestly, the best conbread I've ever had was Jiffy, right out of the box. Even mama's shit from scratch can't touch Jiffy. For Memphis-style conbread though (I know this isn't at a restaurant), there's a yummy recipe in my elvis dinner party article in the Flyer this week. Supposedly, it's the recipe Mary Jenkins (his personal cook) used to make for him.

is Jiffy local (Memphis)? I dig cornbread too, but prefer simple and basic like the recipe in the Flyer. I know there's a zillion variations, most of which shouldn't even be called cornbread, but try substituting a spoonful of maple syrup for the sugar (um, Canadian variation, I guess).

no Jiffy's not local. it's a mix you buy from the grocery store. good stuff
though. break it up in a glass of buttermilk and eat with a spoon for best results.

Jiffy is the ticket, but its a good idea to add fresh tomatoes, peppers, onions and parmesan or other cheese. Heat an iron skillet with oil in the oven so it sizzles when you pour the batter in. Yessss.

Garnish with cheez whiz. Skip the chocolate birthday cake, a couple layers of this goes great with beer.

the key to great jiffy corn bread is to use sour cream instead of milk and to add a can of cream corn and a can of kernel corn to the recipe. (any cheese you want to add is an extra bonus) yummy corn pudding

The cupboard has cornbread in the shape of little corncobs.It's very good, but do not eat it once it gets cold or it'll taste like crisco.

It made me really happy to see there's actually a website devoted to Men Who Look Like Kenny Rogers because at age seven, I too, had an amazing Kenny Roger's look-a-like siting and that experience has shaped who I am today. You see, when I was a kid, my mom and I bonded over those shows on TNN like "What's Cooking?" with Florence Henderson and Hee-Haw. Anyway, it was at this point in my life that I noticed my look-a-like driving the car behind us while stopped at a stop sign. I was like, "Mom, look it's Kenny Rogers." And she said, "Well, that's not actually Kenny but he does resemble him." Of course, I refused to believe my mother and remained convinced that I had actually seen the real Kenny. And most of my young life, I held on to that belief, finding every chance I could to tell all my friend that I had seen the real Kenny Roger at a stop sign in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Anyway, I just thought I should share that.

The BEST cornbread I ever ate is at a cajun restaurant up here in Canada (believe it or not...) I got to talkin' to the chef there, and I now know the secret ingredient: Cream Corn. Just add some creamed corn to your recipe, and it's sooooo moist, it's like a dessert! I'm hongry!

Is a forum on cornbread really the place to lament a broken heart? Maybe so, maybe no.

My last cornbread cake was in the shape of a heart, but the top layer broke when I put it on top. The solution? Cover the split with cheeze whiz...before accidently burning it at breakfast while reheating it the next moring, and forwarding directly to the trash...

Maybe it belonged there to begin with.
