Directions

Combine milk, melted butter, cornmeal, sugar, and salt in a 3-quart microwave-safe bowl. Whisk well; cover with plastic wrap, make a small vent, and microwave on high for 8 minutes, or until mixture is thick and most of the liquid is absorbed. Whisk twice during cooking. Combine eggs, Tabasco, 3/4 C. fried onions, cheese, and baking powder in a bowl. Stir egg and cheese mixture into the cornmeal mixture. Microwave uncovered at 50% power (medium) for 5 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with remaining fried onions (1/2 C.). Microwave for another 1 minute at 50% power. Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish.
