  • Zea's Roasted Corn and Grits recipe

    I was wondering if ya'll can help me?
    I had this recipe a few years ago, thought that I found it here...and printed it out....only to have nearly driven my self insane looking for it. I have slips of paper, recipes, pages, magazine pages, etc. all in a large WalMart tote.....I know, I know I need to file them etc.
    But, folks I am desperate. I opened my big mouth at a gathering lately, and mentioned how good these were....and said : " Oh I have the recipe, never have made it...but I'll send it to you". I am kicking myself...Help........
    Thousand thanks, Peggy

    Roasted corn grits like Zea's

    List of Ingredients

    Serves 4 or 5

    4 ears fresh corn on the cob
    1 small yellow onion
    2 tablespoons minced garlic
    stick butter
    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    1 cup Quaker Golden quick grits
    Water or chicken stock
    Salt and Cajun seasoning

    Remove husk from corn and roast on grill. (Or, soak the corn in its husk in water for a while, then roast the whole ear in the husk, on a grill or in the oven. Once the corn is done, the silk is very easy to remove.) Remove the corn from the cob. Lightly chop the corn.

    Melt butter in a large skillet and saute the onions until soft. After a few minutes, add garlic and cook until both are softened.

    With water or chicken stock, prepare the grits according to the package directions, using a little less liquid because you will add cream when almost ready.

    When the grits are almost done, add the corn kernels, the sauteed onions and garlic, and cream. Simmer for about 5 minutes, or longer, until thickened. Season with salt and Cajun seasoning.

    Here's a simpler version, also from a local cook who put it on the Internet.

    Another roasted corn grits recipe
    Source: CookingKat / RecipeCircus

    1 cup grilled corn
    2 cups chicken broth
    2 cups heavy cream
    1 cup yellow corn grits (not instant)
    Salt and pepper

    To grill corn, shuck off husk. Lightly butter corncob and grill over charcoal or open fire until slightly blackened. Cool corn; cut kernels from cob with a sharp knife.

    Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Add heavy cream and return to a boil. Slowly whisk in the grits, and then the corn. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook 5 to 6 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.

    I have also cut the kernels off and roasted in a cast iron skillet in the oven.
