We love grits! We usually eat them for breakfast with butter,salt,pepper and an egg ( maybe bacon too). But this grits recipe has a little twist and it is oh so easy ( and I mean easy) to prepare. Enjoy it as a side dish with anything, breakfast, lunch or dinner. This recipe needs to be refrigerated overnight so it is best to plan ahead for this one.
Grits ( see directions for enough to serve four)
½ Cup milk
1 Cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 tsp Black pepper
1/4 tsp garlic powder
Pie plate ( or shallow dish) sprayed with nonstick cooking spray
¾ Cup canola oil
Paper towel lined plate
Before You Start Prepare grits according to directions pour into prepared pie plate, cover and refrigerate overnight ( or at least 4 hours)
Lets Make It! Remove grits from refrigerator and slice grits in pie plate into thin wedges. In a bowl whisk together egg and milk. In the second bowl add flour, garlic, pepper and salt. Heat oil in frying pan over medium high heat. Lightly coat each wedge in the flour mixture, then in the egg mixture, and then in flour again. Place into hot oil and cook turning carefully while cooking to make sure all sides are golden brown . Remove from oil using slotted spoon and place on paper towel lined plate. Continue until all wedges have been cooked. Season with more salt and pepper if desired.
Katie’s Tid Bits * Add your choice of seasonings and extra ingredients. If you are not on a migraine safe diet you can even try layering the grits with chopped ham or shrimp, or stir through some shredded cheese and herbs all before you refrigerate.
