Ingredients

Grits:
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup grits 
  • 4 ounces white Cheddar, grated 
  • 6 tablespoons butter 
Fried Green Tomatoes:
  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal 
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder 
  • 1 teaspoon paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon ground white pepper 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 5 large green tomatoes, cut into 1/2-inch slices 

Directions

For the grits: Scald the milk in a medium saucepan, then whisk in the grits. Cook, stirring often, until thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir in the Cheddar, and when the cheese is melted, stir in the butter. Turn off the heat and cover with a lid to keep warm.

For the fried green tomatoes: In a large, heavy-bottomed skillet heat about 3/4-inch oil until a pinch of cornmeal tossed in bubbles vigorously, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, combine the cornmeal, flour, garlic powder, paprika, white pepper and salt in a medium bowl with a whisk. Dredge the tomato slices in the seasoned flour and add to the skillet (do not crowd). Cook, flipping once, until the tomatoes are golden, about 6 minutes total. Repeat with the remaining tomatoes.

Serve the tomatoes with the grits.
