Cornbread in the South is normally made without sugar. I added a small amount of sugar, but you can leave it out if you wish. The jalapeño pepper is also optional.
2 ½ cups yellow cornmeal (I use Palmetto Farms)
1 t sea salt
3 large eggs, beaten
When melted pour butter into the batter and mix well to combine.

To make a Creole or Cajun gumbo, you first have to make a roux. I like to use my well seasoned cast-iron stew pot to make gumbo. I also like to use a little less oil to flour ratio than most gumbos call for. Let your roux come to the color of an old penny before adding the "trinity".I also added my recipe for Cajun Seasoning. Cajun seasoning does not contain dried oregano and basil. Traditionally Cajun food does not contain tomatoes. This recipe is for the more city-style version.
1 lb medium shrimp, shelled, deveined, and set aside

This recipe will ensure your clams will not feel like little erasers in your mouth. Adding canned chopped and whole baby clams makes this recipe easy and less expensive. My husband said it reminds him of the clam chowder at the Brotherhood in Nantucket.
You can leave out the bacon and use just a teaspoon of oil to cook the onion.

Country rolls or slider rolls with ham and cheese are a traditional brunch entree in the South. They are heated in the oven in a baking pan or dish covered with aluminum foil. Set up your sideboard with good silver, china, crystal, and flowers. Add some scrambled eggs, a fruit salad, Mimosas or Bloody Marys. This is southern hospitality at its best.
