Vanilla Bean Corn Toasties

I was cruising through recipes at Recipezaar the other day and came across Corn Toasties.

OMG, I haven't eaten a corn toasty in a hundred years.

When I was a kid, we were always popping these in the toaster for breakfast.

I believe they were made by Howard Johnson's at the time.

Anyway, I just HAD to make them, and they were good. Give it a try.

1 stick butter, melted
1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 vanilla bean
1 1/2 t baking powder
3/4 c cornmeal
1 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/2 t salt
1 c milk

Preheat oven to 350 F.

In a medium-sized bowl mix together the melted butter & sugar. Stir in the eggs and the seeds from one vanilla bean. Add the baking soda, cornmeal, flour & salt. Mix until everything is moistened. Stir in milk and mix thoroughly.

Lightly grease a 13 x 9 baking dish. Pour the batter into the dish and spread evenly to all the corners.

Bake for 30 minutes and/or until beginning to brown along the edges.

Cut into rectangles or squares that will fit in your toaster. Store in a freezer bag.

To serve, toast in a toaster & top with butter, syrup, honey or jam.
