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

  1. In 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.
  2. When cool, stir in egg yolks, cheese, mustard, honey and bacon. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  3. Shape into a 9" log. Wrap in parchment paper and chill until very cold, 2-3 hours.
  4. Cut 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.
  5. Heat the remaining butter in a saute pan and sauté gently over medium heat 2-3 minutes on each side and serve very hot.
