Need a new take on an old favorite? Well try this flavorful recipe that combines turkey, collard greens and cornbread in a taco (yes, a taco).  It’s simple, easy and oh-so-delicious

 

Stack of plain pancakes

For Johnny Cakes (taco shell):

Prep Time:1 Minutes
Cook time:1 Minutes

Ingredients
2 cups fine-ground yellow or white cornmeal
1 tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup milk
Butter (for the pan)

Directions:

In a medium bowl, whisk together cornmeal, sugar and salt. Pour in boiling water and mix until you form a paste. Gradually add in milk and stir, stopping occasionally to check the consistency of the batter. It should feel like thin mashed potatoes. In a cast-iron skillet or on a griddle, melt 1 tbsp butter. Spoon tablespoonfuls of the batter onto the skillet, spreading them out to about a 2-inch diameter. Cook on each side until golden brown, about 4-6 minutes. Make sure you have a generous layer of butter on the bottom of the skillet or griddle when making these so they soak up the flavor.
