This is an old Cajun breakfast recipe usually made with cornmeal; but I experimented with millet meal, and it makes a great substitute. Serves 4 or more

  • 1/4 cup ghee or light olive oil
  • 2 cups millet meal (grind whole millet in a coffee grinder to the consistency of corn meal)
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder [see Note]
  • 1-1/2 cups water
How to make it:
  1. Heat the oil over medium heat in a heavy skillet, such as cast iron.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients; then add the water, and mix thoroughly.
  3. Pour and spread the mixture into the hot oil, and allow a crust to form on the bottom before stirring.
  4. Give it a good stir and lower heat to simmer.
  5. Stir occasionally and cook, covered, for about 15 minutes.
  6. Serve in bowls with milk of choice like a hot cereal.
  7. Top, if desired, with a drizzle of light molasses, sugar, agave nectar, or fig preserves. Enjoy!
