Glorious Grits: Fresh, Flavorful Recipes for Grits, Cornmeal & Polenta
WOW! This is delicious, comes together easily, and in the end, does not disappoint. I must admit, I did not prepare the grits patties, but took a shortcut, preparing the grits as usual, stirring in the Parmesan and then serving. Just for fun, I will try the patties someday when I have more time. I also used only 1 lb. of pork, but since I'm trying to increase the veggies these days, that worked for me. Try this recipe! It has great flavor!
This is a great recipe. Instead of making the grits patties (because I was pressed for time), I served over cheese grits made with equal portions of chicken broth, water and half & half finished off with a cup of Five Cheese Italian Blend cheese. I was out of the kitchen in under 45 minutes from start to cleanup.
This is certainly a recipe that I will make again.
