So every now and again I see something that is Not Done and I wonder why. Some things in our culture, especially in the South, have weird rules that everyone follows even though it doesn't make sense. For example, one of the most uncouth things a Southerner can do is to bring storebought potato salad to a potluck dinner. I mean, I don't care if it's the kind with bacon and Greek dressing that I could eat a whole bowlful of by myself, it's just Not Done. If you can't cook at all, you bring napkins and paper plates or something, but you just don't bring something from the Kroger Deli.

One of those things pertains to catfish in the South. Catfish is to be rolled in cornmeal and deep fried at about 375 degrees until it floats, and that's it. If you want to be high-fallutin' about it, you can put some spices in the corn meal, or maybe squeeze a lemon over it, but that's it. There is simply no other way of cooking catfish.

So of course when I wound up with some on sale at the meat counter, I decided I had to bake it.

Zatarans seasoning, fine ground corn meal, and some spray-on oil, and so much less mess and it's fantastic.

Anyway, take the Quiz, and come back and tell us if there's something you like to cook in an unusual way.

Winners and Easiest/Hardest from last week are in the NotNewsletter.

Don't forget the Easy Quiz!

Good luck, and let me know if you have any issues.

You'd think that somebody who spends more time on Fark.com than he ever did at work would be good at doing the Fark Quiz, but Hell, it's the Easy Version for me.

I should try the Hard Quiz, though, because I'm Brantgoose:  it might be easier than the Easy Quiz because I'm Brantgoose.

That's the way with most things in life:  it's the easy stuff that trips me up. Things other people find hard are usually a cynch, it's day to day living that I can't handle.

What drives me crazy and lowers my score is that nobody in the house needs me all day long, until the second I click on 'take quiz.' Then both dogs come in wanting me to play with them, the third one wants to eat, my husband wants to talk about the TV show he's watching. Ima start driving up the street and parking in the grocery store parking lot before taking it. Peace and quiet.

Good lord, some of the questions are longer than the articles they're about.

Basted eggs.  It's like sunny-side-up, but you put about a teaspoon of water in the pan after you add the eggs, and clamp a lid on it.  A glass lid removes the guesswork, cook until the yolks go from bright yellow to having a little "haze" on them (you can see it creeping up from the whites.  Once that starts, plate them and you have liquid yolks (runny, but not watery) and firm whites.

You use a non-stick pan or lots of grease?

Basted or sunny-side, Alton Brown suggests a non-stick pan and just using the whole stick of butter to paint a thin layer covering the cooking surface.

Personally, I do it like you probably do it:  I use about a Tbs of butter in a hot pan, swirl it about to coat the pan.

Except I let it brown a little before adding the eggs.

I like butter.

I have a non-stick that I only use for eggs.

I was doing that before Alton came along!

Ya, well my grammy has been basting her eggs with bacon grease since we were both in diapers.

- Fry bacon in the most beautifully cured cast iron skillet you've ever seen.
- Remove bacon.
- Scrape stuck bits loose.
- Crack eggs into pan.
- Baste yolks with hot grease.
- Serve eggs and bacon on top of grits

Ya, no mystery where she was from.
