Description

If you’ve never tried them, I’m sure you’ll be just as surprised as I was the first time I ever tasted them. It’s certainly not going to be what you think or expect. Especially when you top them with syrup. Grits and syrup? Oh yes. Perfect for breakfast as a main dish or just a side dish. It’s a great way to use leftover grits.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Cooked Grits, Quick Grits Or Stone Ground Preferred, Prepared The Night Before And Refrigerated Overnight
  • 1 cup Flour, All-purpose Or Self-rising
  • 1  Egg, Beaten
  • Oil, For Frying

Preparation

1. Prepare grits according to directions on packaging. I used enough for 2 cups of prepared grits.
2. Pour warm prepared grits into a shallow dish or container to a depth of about ½ inch.
3. Cover dish with plastic wrap or foil and refrigerate overnight.
4. The next morning … Prepare dredge station by placing one cup of flour in a container or plate.
5. Crack one egg, beat well and place in a second container.
6. Remove grits from refrigerator, drain any excess water and turn out onto cutting board.
7. Slice grits into sections as desired.
8. Dip each section, one at a time, into flour and make sure to coat both sides and ends well. Place on a plate and repeat with the rest of the grits.
9. Then dip each section into the egg wash, coating both sides and ends well.
10. Dip each section back into the flour again, coating both sides and ends well.
11. Gently shake off any excess flour, place on plate to dry for several minutes.
12. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat and add cooking oil to about ¼ inch depth.
13. Place coated grit sections into the heated oil but do not crowd the pan. You can cook them in batches if you don’t have room.
14. Brown grits about 5 minutes or until bottom edges start to slightly brown.
15. Carefully flip the sections and brown the reverse side until bottom and edges are also brown.
16. Remove from skillet, place on folded paper towels and let drain for a minute or two. Repeat with the remaining grits sections.
17. Serve warm, as is or, top with maple syrup.
18. Enjoy!
