Grits Cakes

Remember those yummy garlic cheese grits we made last weekend? Well, we're about to turn these into some awesome grit cakes! Talk about good. Give 'em a try ... they are fantastic!

First preheat your deep fryer to 355 degrees, or heat oil in a large skillet. In a medium bowl, mix up some flour with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning.

Get out the container of leftover grits.

And slice off some of it.

Shape it however you want. I cut mine into squares and then triangles.

Dip them in the flour.

And fry! Only takes maybe 3-4 minutes or so. Be sure to drop them or just set them in the basket with some space between them because you don't want to touch them for that first minute to avoid breaking them up. You'll know when they are done when they start floating and look golden brown.

Total yum!
