    plainchicken's Note:

    I had these grit fritters at Bone's in Atlanta. They are rich and creamy and easy to make. I found the original recipe online at Bone's serves them as a side item without the sauce. Try these at home - you won't be disappointed!

      My sibling and I enjoyed this very much as a snack-type supper. The only changes I made were to substitute water for milk, as we were out of milk (but they were still good) and roll the second half of the batch in flour twice instead of breadcrumbs because I found out too late that I didn't have enough breadcrumbs for all. Oops! Those didn't fry up *as* nicely, but I blame it on operator error. I did find that I needed twice the oil called for in the recipe, but fortunately I had plenty of that. Still, a very nice, light supper and a keeper of a recipe!

      These were very good! I served them with a prime rib dinner, they were a very different side from normal potatoes or rice. The only change I made was to pour the grits into a roasting pan for the chilling time, then cut them into round shapes using a biscuit cutter.
