Cook Old Fashion Grits as instucted on package using half water and half milk. For mine, I use 1 cup of grits to 2 cups of water and 2 cups of milk. Add a tablespoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of salt.
As the grits thicken, continue to stir until they almost form a thick paste. Add the 1/4 cup of corn, bacon slices fried cut into small pieces, jalapeños peppers chopped and stir rapidly to keep the grits from burning on the bottom of the pan.
Prepare a cook sheet lined with wax paper or parchment paper spread with olive oil.
Pour the grit paste onto the cookie sheet and spread it out with a spachula to form a square about 1/4 inch thick.
Put the cook sheet into a freezer or frigerater and let it completely cool until the grits have become a solid sheet.
Using a cookie cutter cut shapes out of the grit sheet and place onto a lightly oiled cookie sheet and top each shape with a little cheddar cheese
Broil the grit shapes until warm and cheese topping has melted.
Serve with eggs and meat and perhaps some slices of Avocado.
This receipt could be modified in many ways. Next time for a dinner side , I might cost the shapes with a mixture of breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese after a quick dip in egg and make the shapes until the outer layer is crispy.
