Fritter Recipes

We call these "gritters" in our house, but I did not want to confuse you, I just want to introduce you to something delicious! I'm not a huge fan of eating grits with a spoon from a bowl, but I do love these rolled up versions. These fritters are super creamy on the inside and crispy on the outside. They are awesome little snacks, and great appetizers for parties.

Prep Time: 20 minutes plus chill time

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: 6-8 servings


  • 1 cup quick cooking grits
  • 4 cups milk or water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups Panko crumbs
  • Vegetable oil


  1. Cook grits to package directions with milk or water and 1 teaspoon of salt. Remove from heat and stir in cheese, bacon, green onions, corn, black peppers, chili powder, and garlic powder.
  2. Pour into a large lightly greased baking pan, cover with plastic wrap, and chill in fridge at least 1 hour.

  4. Whisk eggs in a bowl. Stir in a few tablespoons of water.
  5. Place eggs next to a bowl of Panko crumbs so you have your dunking station ready.
  6. Roll some of the grits mixture into a little ball.
  7. Submerge ball into egg, letting any excess drip off, then roll in Panko crumbs. Repeat.

  9. Add a couple inches of oil to a deep skillet and bring to 350 F. Fry the balls in small batches for a few minutes, until golden brown all over.
  10. Allow fritters to drain on a paper towel lined plate. Serve warm. My family likes this as is, I like mine with a simple spicy-sweet sauce made of Sriracha, mayonnaise, and honey.
