It has been way too long since I've posted anything. Honestly, I had to take a break because my business is about to launch and I've been too busy to cook. But, check out this recipe. I served it to some friends with a Rosemary Roasted Leg of Lamb and an Asparagus Salad with Shallot Vinaigrette.

(and this Raspberry Torte for dessert)

Horseradish Grits

¾ cup quick grits
1 cup boiling water
1 ½ teaspoons salt, divided
¼ teaspoon white pepper
4 tablespoons butter, divided
2 cups milk, scalded and divided
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon horseradish

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In top of double boiler, mix boiling water with 1 teaspoon salt, gradually stir in grits. Add two tablespoons butter; boil about 5 minutes, until water is absorbed. Add 1 cup scalded milk. Blend thoroughly, cook 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter. In a bowl, blend egg, sour cream, horseradish, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon white pepper with second cup of cooled scaled milk.. Add grits. Beat 1 minute with electric mixer. Butter a 2 quart casserole dish and fold grits into dish.

Bake 30 minutes, until lightly browned.


Let me know what you think...
