    gailanng's Note:

    A version of the most popular side at Zea Rotisserie and Grill. The prep times includes corn roasting. Update 6-19-11: I prefer the use of 1/2 chicken stock and 1/2 water for cooking the grits. The usual amount reqired for 1 cup of grits is 3 cups of liquid. So that would be 1 1/2 cups stock plus 1 1/2 cups water.

    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 ears fresh corn on the cob
    • 1 cup onion, chopped fine (no more or it will overpower the taste)
    • 1 -2 garlic, toes minced
    • 1/4 cup butter (4 tablespoons)
    • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 1 cup yellow corn grits (like Quaker Golden or Red Mill,do not use instant)
    • chicken stock (in place of water according to package directions(see note in recipe description)
    • salt and pepper (or can use Cajun seasoning)


    1. 1
      Remove husk from corn and roast on grill until slightly blackened. Remove the corn from the cob. Lightly chop the corn. (Also, see other roasting methods in 'note' below).
    2. 2
      Melt butter in a large skillet and saute the onions until slightly soft; add garlic and cook until both are softened.
    3. 3
      With chicken stock (or slightly less than 1 1/2 cups stock & 1 1/2 cups water), prepare the grits according to the package directions. Grits should be very soft.
    4. 4
      When the grits are almost done, add the corn kernels, sauteed onions and garlic, and cream. Simmer, stirring constantly, for about 5 minutes or longer until thickened. Season with salt and pepper. Can garnish with thinly sliced green onions.
    5. 5
      Note: Kernels of corn can be cut off and roasted in a cast iron skillet in the oven or soak the corn in its husk in cold water for 30 minutes, then roast the whole ear in the husk on a grill about 20 minutes. Can, also, be roasted or in the oven for about 30 minutes. Once the corn is done, the silk is very easy to remove.
