This recipe was entered in our We ♥ Local Cornmeal recipe contest by Stuart Mays. Stuart says,"The ultimate winter comfort food. The natural sweetness of the whole corn enhances the flavor and texture of the cornmeal. Millet, a nutritious grain often said to have a taste reminiscent of corn, gives bulk to the dish, and along with the eggs, makes it hearty and filling. The cheesy interior and garnish of melted cheese with a kick of jalapeño make the casserole warming and irresistible on a winter's night."
