  • 2 cups Leftover Grits
  • 4 tablespoon Vegetable Oil, to fry
  • 3 tablespoon Confectioners Sugar
  • 3 cups Vanilla Ice Cream
  • 1 cup Your Favorite Store bought Marmalade
  • Cooking Directions

    Place leftover grits into a casserole dish and refrigerate until grits are firm and set.

    Preheat oil to 360F. Cut the grits into 1-inch by 1-inch squares, and carefully drop in the oil and fry until crisped. Transfer to a paper towel lined plate. While still warm, sprinkle generously with confectioners sugar.

    Meanwhile, warm your favorite marmalade in a small saucepot until heated through, being careful not to burn. You can add a little water if necessary to thin out the consistency.

    To serve, scoop vanilla ice cream over the squares of fried grits, and drizzle marmalade over top.
