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?

    Were they flat and round? If so it sounds like lace hoecakes, otherwise known as johnny cakes or hot water cornbread. There are many recipes if you google.

    Now, I'm hungry for johnny cakes. :)

      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.

        Too bad, because now I'm intrigued too.

          Off topic, but my husband used to get this monster breakfast dish at Roger's BBQ with scrambled eggs topped with onions, hash browns, sausage and cream gravy and cheddar cheese!

          I am afraid I dont remember the cornbread either

        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.
