Rogers Barbecue on Atando in Charlotte
Now closed -- they featured cornbread that was thin (about 3/8" thick) and light. Does anybody know how they prepared it?
No, I get a lot of requests for this one and I think they are referring to a cornbread that was thin but square. Kind of like the tile-style at Skylight Inn in Ayden. At least, that's according to reader descriptions -- I ate at the old Eastway Drive location years ago, when I first come to Charlotte, but I can't remember much about the cornbread. Mostly I remember the lifesize Frankenstein inside the door. Sadly, no, I do not have the recipe. I've sent out calls for readers who might have it, but I've never had any luck.

I think I remember the cornbread being round and were pie shapes. Weren't they wedges? Just thinking of them makes my mouth water. They were baked and not fried like HoCakes or Johnny Cakes.
Did it look like this? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vs-xJ... This is how my grandma would fry cornbread. We would roast a bushel of oysters outside, she would fry cornbread outside on a gas burner and she would serve her canned sweet pickles. The best part she would make a ketchup, black pepper, vinegar mixture, just what you think of for Eastern BBQ sauce, and we would dip our roasted oysters in it!!
