Yep, our True Fried Grits are the real thing...a down-home Southern classic with a today-easy twist!
What You'll Need
- 5 cups water
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups white or yellow grits
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
What to Do
- In a medium saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil over medium heat. Line a 9- x 5-inch loaf pan with plastic wrap and coat with cooking spray; set aside.
- Stirring constantly, add grits and cook 8 to 10 minutes, or until water is absorbed and mixture is very thick. Spoon grits into loaf pan. Cover and chill at least 2 hours, or until ready to serve.
- When ready to serve, cut into 1/2-inch slices. In a large skillet, heat butter and oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Fry slices a few at a time for 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until golden. Serve immediately.
Use only as many slices as you need and keep the remaining loaf in the refrigerator, well wrapped, until needed again. To make traditionally shaped fried grits, rinse several heavy glasses with water. Pack the warm grits firmly in the glasses and chill. Remove the entire log from the glass (or glasses) and slice off as much as you want, returning the rest to the fridge in the glass(es). Fry your round grits as above. And if you're wondering what the difference is between the yellow and white grits, it's not only the color: The yellow ones have a stronger corn flavor.
