Ingredients

  • Fresh ears of corn
  • 2 teaspoons table salt, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked regular grits
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup plain white cornmeal

Preparation

  1. Cut kernels from fresh ears of corn to equal 2 cups, and place in a bowl. Using the dull side of a knife blade, scrape milk and remaining pulp from cobs into bowl.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°. Bring 1 tsp. salt and 6 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Gradually whisk in grits, and return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, whisking often, 15 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Remove grits from heat, and whisk in butter. Whisk about one-fourth of hot grits mixture into eggs; whisk egg mixture into remaining hot grits mixture. Gradually whisk in milk. Whisk in cornmeal and remaining 1 tsp. salt. Stir in corn kernels. Pour grits mixture into a lightly greased 2 1/2-qt. baking dish.
  4. Bake at 375° for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes or until golden brown and set.
