You down with CPP (Corn Pone Pie)?

Yeah you know me!

So, back in the good old days when my grandparents were of (relatively) sound body and mind, my grandma (the one who's still living) used to make this thing she called Corn Pone Pie. It was corny and cheesy and delicious. Nowadays, Grandma can barely walk, let alone remember how to make Corn Pone Pie.

Thankfully, before Parkinson's Disease ruined Grandma's brain, my sister asked her for the recipe for Corn Pone Pie. It's simple, fast and muy delicioso.

Grandma Garcia's Corn Pone Pie

2 eggs beaten
1/2 c. milk
1 16 oz. can whole kernel corn
1 16 oz. can cream style corn
approx. 15 saltine crackers crushed
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 small can Ortega diced green chiles
Salt and pepper
optional - a little garlic salt or onion salt

Beat eggs in 2 qt. casserole dish, add milk and beat together. Add all other ingredients and mix well. Put some grated cheese on top and bake at 350 until knife blade comes out clean when stuck in middle. Although my sister's recipe doesn't specify for how long, I'd say about half an hour will do the trick. And if I were you, I might throw a little extra cheese in the mix.
