Corn Dodgers

Corn Dodgers are a very old, rural southern recipe served as an accompaniment to cooked greens. You could think of them as cornmeal dumplings!

-Denise from South Georgia

Great and easy recipe. Just like my mother in law used to make years ago. I cooked mine in with the turnip greens. May want to cut back on salt in them if you are salt conscious.

— Ground white cornmeal — Salt — Ground black pepper — Green onion — Broth from turnip greens


Mix the cornmeal, salt, pepper, and onion in a medium bowl.


Add pot likker, starting with about 3/4 cup to make a stiff dough.


Using about 2 tablespoons of dough for each dodger, shape the dough into rolls about twice as long as wide.


From the pot of turnip greens, remove 3 cups of pot likker (okay, broth) and place it in a medium saucepan.
