Awesome Buttery Grits with Corn

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 40 mins

A local restaurant, Zea's, serves grits as a side dish. This is my version of those grits. No, they aren't for the serious dieter but if you want to treat yourself to an occasional splurge I don't think you will be disappointed. NOTE: You may want to start off just using 1/2 cup of butter. Some people find 1 cup to be a little too much. You can always add more if you like.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In skillet melt butter and add whole kernel corn.
  2. Season to taste and saute corn over medium heat until light brown approximately 20 minutes.
  3. In large saucepan combine chicken broth, cream, butter, corn and salt.
  4. Bring to a boil and slowly add grits stirring constantly.
  5. Lower heat, cover and simmer on low for 15 to 20 minutes.

These are awesome! Everytime I make them someone asks for the recipe! I think you do need to cut the butter back to 1/2 cup like it says. Using a little Tony's to season the corn makes it just a little more special! These are the bomb!

Umm, wow! I did have to change a couple things: 1/2 cup butter, and milk instead of cream. Though I must say, I can't imagine it being any more decadent than it was - even with the changes! I think next time I am going to double the amount of corn and double the amount of garlic pepper seasoning and creole seasoning that I originally used (I was being far too cautious during this trial round). Both pair really well with this dish! Thanks for such a tasty treat! I will never look at grits the same ;)
