Whyyyy Would You Call It This?


Another from the old family recipe box. There are a couple of things to puzzle over in this cornbread recipe, starting with the very questionable name. Gringo? Really? And is that because of the wimpy combination of cheddar and Jack cheeses? Then there’s the strange #303 delineation for the can of creamed corn. Now we’d identify the can size or amount by ounces.

Finally, I can’t say I remember ever eating this. I’m going to guess from the huge serving amount, that it was saved for large gatherings. If at all. What I do remember is the family going through many boxes of Jiffy cornbread mix, baked in corncob-shaped muffin pans.
