Hold up, have you heard of GRIT CAKES?

Grit cakes are like the cool kids of the grits world. They're cooked, cut into funky shapes, and then fried to perfection...

until they're crispy and golden brown. Plus, you can top them with all sorts of yummy stuff!

Alright, let me spill the beans about the secret to making the perfect grit cakes. πŸ˜‰

Grease a 9x12-inch pan. Boil water, milk, bay leaf, and salt. Gradually whisk in grits, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add butter and cheese, stir until melted. Spread out onto the prepared pan and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate for 2 hours to overnight, covered with foil.

Heat butter in a skillet. Cut chilled grits into circles. Brush egg on top. Fry each side for 2-3 minutes until golden.

Serve with shrimp or ham. 😍
