  • 1/2 cup coarse cornmeal
  • medium finely chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and Montery Jack cheeses,combined
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled or chopped
  • 1/4 ounce of taco seasoning mix
  • beaten egg with 1 tablespoon cream
  • cracker crumbs
Instructions
  1. Using double boiler or two pots, one of which can fit into the other, heat water about 1 1/2 inches deep in the bottom half. Put 2 cups of water and salt in upper half of double boiler and bring to a boil on direct heat. Stir in the cornmeal slowly into the salted water. Cook several minutes over the direct heat, stirring constantly.

  5. Beat together egg and cream.
     
  6. Put cracker crumbs in a dish. Sprinkle black pepper on slices.
     
  7. Place a grid or rack onto a baking sheet, large enough to hold the 8 slices off the baking sheet.
