  • 10 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 10 cups yellow cornmeal

  • 5 cups milk


  1. Throw all the ingredients into a bowl and mix them up.
  2. Grease a 12 x 20-inch pan (or two 12 x 10-inch pans) with Pam.
  3. Pour the batter into the pan and spread evenly.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until brown and firm in center. Push a wooden pick in the center to see if any sticks to it. When the pick comes out clean, the cornbread is ready.
