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.

How to Make Technically Not Bacon and Blue Cheese Fritters

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.
