What’s weird about this is that I am a sugar and grits kind of girl… always have been. However after hearing so much about the corn grits at Zea’s Rotisserie I decided to try them a few weeks ago when I went for my bestfriend’s birthday.
OH-EM-GEE I fell in love… so rich and buttery… just good!!
After mulling over ordering them to go today, I thought maybe I’d see about making them at home. So I looked up this recipe and they came out so good. I keep taking bites of them even though I’m full as a tick.
[of course there are some substitutions to make it a little easier]
2 cups water
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup yellow grits [I couldn’t find them so I used regular Quaker instant grits]
1/2 pound butter
1 tablespoon salt
1 ear grilled corn, kernels removed [I used one can of corn and sauteed them in butter]
Bring liquids to a boil. Stir in grits. Add butter. Cook at simmer until thickened [about 10 minutes with instant grits]. At end, stir in corn.
This recipe makes enough for a small army so next time I think I’ll cut it in half.
Soooooo yum! Enjoy!
