This recipe is great all by itself, but I like to make it along with the BROWN GRAVY MEATBALLS for two reasons. The first reason being that I use the bacon grease to brown the meatballs in and the second being that the brown gravy is absolutely delicious over the corn bread pudding. These two recipes compliment each other PERFECTLY 😀
