Country Fried Cheese Grits
Cook the grits according to the instructions on the package. When desired consistency is achieved, stir in the grated cheese.
- 1 cup regular grits
1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese
2 large eggs
1/3 cup milk
salt and pepper - to taste
Pour the grits into a 9x9 or 9x12 pan that's been lightly coated with cooking spray. Cover and refrigerate overnight - at least 8 hours.
When ready to prepare...
Beat the eggs with the milk in a large bowl.
Remove the grits from the refrigerator and cut the firmed-up grits into strips or squares at least 3-inches wide.
Gently dredge the pieces of grits through the egg batter.
Fry as you would French Toast - over medium-high heat in about 2 Tablespoons of butter or oil per batch. Fry until golden brown on both sides.
Season to taste and serve.
This is the perfect side dish for a big Southern Sunday Breakfast. Despite the need to refrigerate overnight, it's pretty easy to make.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.
