WHO: AntoniaJames is a longtime Food52er and a lawyer to boot.
WHAT: A spoon bread that tastes like comfort.
HOW: Make a stovetop batter; whip up some egg whites, then fold them in; watch the whole thing rise as it bakes.
WHY WE LOVE IT: If spoon bread wasn’t a part of your childhood, as it was AntoniaJames’, it’s easy to feel left out. Don’t: Just make this version — fluffy and lightly spiced and tangy from buttermilk — as soon as possible. Call it making up for lost time.
