HELP! What's a substitute for cornmeal? Just started cooking dinner and I don't have cornmeal--a critical ingredient in the main dish!

What is your main dish? Would rice flour work? Nice crunch . . .

It was a corn pudding. I used Matzo Meal. It was interesting. I think I'll have to retest.

You can grind corn tortilla chips back into powder to make cornmeal.

Semolina flour is good also for some applications.

@lorinarlock
Semolina would might be good for a corn pudding with a can of cream style corn. (or your own creamed corn from the cob---but that's best made with a corn cutter, a device with two blades..one to cut open the top of the kernels and another for scraping and cutting the juice out).
