Directions

  • 1 Spray 8-inch square pan with cooking spray. In 2-quart saucepan, heat milk and salt to boiling. Gradually add grits, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until thickened. Add cheese, bacon, onions and pepper; stir until cheese is melted. Spoon mixture into pan. Refrigerate at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
  • 2 Shape grits into 1 1/2-inch balls. In small bowl, beat eggs and water with whisk or fork. Place bread crumbs in medium bowl. Dip balls in egg mixture, then roll in bread crumbs.
  • 3 In deep fryer or heavy 3-quart saucepan, heat 3 inches oil over medium-high heat (350°F). Fry fritters, in batches, 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Place on metal cooling rack in baking pan and keep warm in 225°F oven up to 30 minutes. Serve warm.
