 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  bacon         bacon  -- fried, in bits
    2      cups          sharp cheddar cheese  -- shredded
      3/4  cup           cornmeal  -- yellow preferred
    1 1/2  cups          cold water
      1/4  cup           butter or shortening  -- room temperature
    2      cloves        garlic  -- crushed
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
    1      cup           milk
    4                    egg yolks
    4                    egg whites  -- stiff beaten
 
 Beforehand, fry the bacon.  Cut or chop into small bits.  Shred the 
 cheese.
 Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Stir cornmeal into the cold water in the
 saucepan and place over medium heat.  Bring to a bubbling boil, stirring
 constantly.  When it is thick-perhaps 60 seconds-remove from heat.  Stir
 in the cheese, butter, garlic and salt.  When cheese is melted pour in
 the milk.  Stir in egg yolks and add bacon bits.  Beat egg whites stiff,
 and fold them into the batter.  pour into the casserole or souffle dish
 (one 2-quart casserole or souffle dish, greased).  Level the batter with
 rubber spatula.  Bake in the oven for about 1 hour.  The bread will be
 nicely browned, high and puffy.  Slip a knife blade into the center of the
 casserole.  If the blade comes out clean and dry, the spoon bread is done.
 If not, return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes.  Remove bread
 from the oven.  Serve while hot.
