How many of you have heard of taking a piece of leftover cornbread and breaking it up in a nice cold glass of buttermilk and eating it like cereal? I saw my grandfather do this many nights when I spent the night over there as a kid. We would be watching the Braves game and he would go grab a leftover piece of cornbread and make us this snack. But when I tell people I eat this now I always get .

not cornbread but other breads and pastries

It is very common here in s.w. va. My mother loved it. I eat it on occasion, but prefer sweet milk and corn bread.

Milk + cornbread + a little sugar = poor people cereal. I used to eat it a lot as a kid, back when I was a hillbilly...



(I'm only 31 )

Buttermilk? What the fuck?

Big bowl of cornbread with whole milk and a spoon full of sugar is some good vittles though.

Damn you just made me hungry! Buttermilk and old cornbread!

I do this all the time, love cornbread and buttermilk with salt and pepper. My grandpa and my dad always did it too.

Whole milk here

I love me some buttermilk, with anything.

My Grandfather did and he would sometimes add onion.

I've actually tried that recipe, honestly - I didn't like it all that much.
Maybe it was just the batch I made, perhaps I should try it again....

Indeed.

He grew up dirt poor in NW Georgia, he said that was his dinner a lot as a kid.

Cornbread and milk for me. I'll get choked on it if I don't take my time.

Haven't had any buttermilk and cornbread in ages. Used to be a staple when I was a wee lad growing up in Indiana.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 9:24:20 PM EST
Yes, hell yes!

My wife and sons eat/drink that stuff; I've got just enough Yankee left in me to despise it.

A slice of butterted toast in a bowl with regular milk poured over it. Seen this a number of times in front of a Southerner.

Not for me.

ETA: Full disclosuer... my belly is full of homeade cornbread right now!

I think if it was not for buttermilk, cornbread, and pinto beans, a lot of us hillbillies just would not be around today because our parents or grandparents would not have survived. I remember my gramma telling me about sometimes for supper all they had was a piece of cornbread -- dirt poor, her mom died when she was a kid, NW Ark. I still remember her doing the glass of buttermilk and cornbread. I am more of a hot cornbread, butter, and molasses person myself.

I still eat that at least once a week, just use regular milk and add pepper

I never got into it, but my dad eats it about once a week, although he uses whole milk.

I've done graham crackers and milk, cornbread (sweet), rice (with sugar), and many others. Tasty.

My mom eats cornbread, whipping cream, and I think molasses..... her and my brother are all over that depression food crap...

That was a favorite snack of my Grandparents. Im 47yrs old and can admit that I've never tasted buttermilk, I can't get past the terrible smell.

My granddad did the same. Miss you Grandpa.
Link Posted: 1/20/2015 10:06:56 PM EST
Sorry, had buttermilk as a kid 54 years ago, did not like it then.
My Dad did, and pickled pigs feet and horseradish for a snack.
Ringed liver pudding, -kishka- I liked that till I grew up and found out what it was.
Oddly, I want some of it all, with crackers, right now.
Skip the buttermilk and red horseradish though.

My Dad loves buttermilk too. Makes me nearly chunder upon slightest whiff.

Leftover??? Not hardly! Dad was known to make cornbread just for that! Break it up in a big glass (not really crumbled, it's better in "chunks"), then a touch of salt and pepper and cover liberally with buttermilk. Hell yeah!
