Until a couple of weeks back, I assumed corn was the only grain in the grits video game. Ends up, millet grits are a point– and also a magnificent tasty-yet-more-neutrally-flavored one at that, making them the best canvas for the enhancement of goat cheese and also chives. They are a wonderful alternative for those with corn allergic reactions, or if you’re just seeking to include a little a lot more whole-grain selection to your diet regimen. Attempt this side instead of (or along with) mashed potatoes together with a pork tenderloin, baked hen or perhaps your Thanksgiving turkey.
What’s terrific regarding this dish is that any kind of leftovers– or the entire set– can be changed right into almost a completely various recipe. Merely move the cozy or warm grits to a heatproof, little meal or loaf frying pan covered gently with olive oil. After cooling in the refrigerator for at the very least a couple of hrs, the block-o-grits can be bulged, reduced right into pieces as well as fried (ideally in a little butter in a nonstick frying pan). They come to be a little crisp outside and also luscious in the center, as well as are wonderful acted as component of a passionate morning meal together with a deep-fried egg as well as some bacon or sausage!
