  • step-by-step directions
Fried Grits with Ice Cream and Warm Marmalade
  • 2 cups Leftover Grits
  • 4 tablespoons Vegetable Oil (to fry)
  • 3 tablespoons Confectioners Sugar
  • 3 cups Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 cup Your Favorite Store Bought Marmalade
  • Place leftover grits into a casserole dish and refrigerate until grits are firm and set.
  • Preheat oil to 360F. Cut  the grits into 1-inch by 1-inch squares, and carefully drop in the oil and fry until crisped. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. While still warm, sprinkle generously with confectioners sugar.
  • Meanwhile, warm your favorite marmalade in a small saucepot until heated through, being careful not to burn. You can add a little water if necessary to thin out the consistency. 
  • To serve, scoop vanilla ice cream over the squares of fried grits, and drizzle marmalade over top.
  • NOTE: Grits can be substituted with polenta or cream of wheat.
