Zea's Roasted Corn Grits

45 mins (prep 35, cooking 10)
12 ingredients
8 servings
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.
