Yuck. I found this 'spoon bread' to be nasty. I've never eaten spoon bread, but I can't imagine that is how it is supposed to taste. (The lemon zest is the ingredient that I blame the most.)

You break 2 eggs into a bowl, beat them up, add 2 cups buttermilk (I checked it for taste, thinking perhaps IT had gone bad and was responsible for the nasty taste--but no), 2 T. of Cheddar, 1/2 c. cornmeal, bit of salt, and 1 T. of lemon zest.

Author seems to want to offer healthier recipes. But in this case, the only way I could eat any of this yuck was to smear with butter. I may throw it out.
