    Terrific breakfast. From The Evolution of Cajun and Creole Cuisine by John Folse. Even better with cooked Jimmy Dean hot sausage!

      I'm on a low carb diet so I couldn't enjoy these, but my husband and sons thought they were delicious. I made the regular "shrimp" portion of a shrimp and grits recipe, and poured the shrimp and sauce over the patties. Everyone agreed that the grit portion was very "unique" and delicious and was better than having the shrimp sauce poured over regular or cheese grits.

      Wow! We rarely have grits in our house, but this recipe will change that. Hubby described it as "the best potato pancake ever" -- and then I informed him that it was made with grits, not potato. :) Instead of sausage, I crumbled 3 slices of cooked turkey bacon and I added some sauteed onion. Yum! I let it set up in a loaf pan in the fridge over night, then cut slices to bread (not as pretty as the circles, but it took up less fridge space). Served it with unsweetened apple sauce, which complimented the flavors perfectly.
