Cheese grits

In 3-Wilhelmina (Bee) Garris King 1918-2007 on June 27, 2009 at 5:08 pm

cheese in milk june 2006

#1 Creamed Cheese with Grits

1 lb. American Kraft cheese, diced
3 eggs, slightly beaten
1 qt. whole milk and canned milk
1 pot cooked grits

Place diced cheese in saucepan with a little milk and warm up slowly. When the cheese begins to melt, add eggs and milk. Let it all cook up and thicken together. Serve with hot grits.

#2 Baked Cheese Grits

3 cups water
1 cup milk
1 stick margarine
1 10 oz Kraft sharp cheese
1 egg beaten
1 cup raw grits

Bring water, milk, oleo & cheese & egg to boil. Add grits. Boil for a few minutes stirring all the time. Pour into baking dish. Bake at 300 til set in middle. Sprinkle Ritz Cracker crumbs on top.

(Editor’s note: The first photo above is from June 2006, when Grandma made Cheese Grits #1 for me when I got to spend a week with her at McCarthy Court. The second photo is from August 2009, and is of an almost-polished-off batch that Aunt Boyd made for the family during the big trip to Florida. Below, we have recipe documentation. Recipe #1 appeared in “Heavenly Helpings,” First Baptist Church New Bern’s 2004 cookbook. Recipe #2 is straight out of Grandma’s recipe box, and she also copied it over into a keepsake cookbook she was filling out for Aunt Boyd. AND UPDATE: Thanks to Aunt Boyd’s comment, I dug out a Welsh Rarebit recipe from Grandma’s oldest, most falling-apart cookbook. Yikes … ale! And beer!)

(Editor’s note: All these photos are from June 2006, when I spent a week with Grandma at McCarthy Court in June 2006 and she set about making what she always called my favorite dish. The only problem is that I don’t have a written recipe! It can’t be too hard … dust the crabs in flour, then fry them in hot oil. But all hands on deck! Add your crab crib notes below.)

(Editor’s note: The top photo is of Mary Predaris, Bee and Bob, probably in the 1980s and probably on the Neuse River, but maybe on the Trent. The two other images appear to have been taken near about the same time.)

Deviled Crabs

In Uncategorized on June 24, 2009 at 3:52 pm

1 lb crab meat
12 saltines (crushed)
1 block oleo
1 Tablespoon mayonnaise
1 teaspoon Worcesthire
1 Tablespoon prepared mustard
Salt & Pepper if needed (crab is very salty itself)

Pour melted oleo over cracker crumbs. Add mayonnaise & other seasoning, then mix in crab meat with fork to keep from breaking up. Fills 6 large crab shells generously or casserole dish. Bake at 400 degree F oven for 30 mi. Serve piping hot.

(Editor’s note: What do you do if you buy the crabmeat with no crab shells? Can you get crab shells at the regular grocery store?)
