Technically Not Bacon and Blue Cheese Fritters

I love bacon. I love blue cheese. I love bacon and blue cheese together. I've been tweaking this recipe for quite some time, and initially used corn meal, but it was a smidge too heavy. So I tried quick cooking grits and it turned out perfectly. It's a nice afternoon break with a cup of tea on a verandah. Everyone loves it.

Ingredients

6 slice
bacon, diced and cook crisp
1/2 c
whole milk
1/4 c
plus 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
salt, just a smidge
2
large egg yolks at room temperature
4 oz
blue cheese, crumbled
2 Tbsp
honey
1/2 c
all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp

1/2 tsp
coarsley ground black pepper
2

Step-By-Step

1In a medium sauce pan, combine the milk and 1 tablespoon of the butter. Bring to boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and stir in grits and salt. Stir well. Remove from heat and cool.

2When cool, stir in egg yolks, cheese, mustard, honey and bacon. Taste and adjust seasoning.

3Shape into a 9" log. Wrap in parchment paper and chill until very cold, 2-3 hours.

4Cut into ¼" slices. You should get anywhere from 30 to 36 slices. Heat the remaining butter in a sauté pan. Combine the flour, salt and pepper in a flat dish. Put the two eggs in a flat-ish bowl and beat well. Place the breadcrumbs in another flat dish. Dip each slice first in flour, then the beaten egg, then breadcrumbs.

5Heat the remaining butter in a saute pan and sauté gently over medium heat 2-3 minutes on each side and serve very hot.
