Grits and Grillades
Like many of the recipes in South Louisiana, “grits and grillades” was introduced by the Creole people. The French and Spanish settlers brought their own styles of cooking and blended them with local crops to create dishes as hot and sultry as the Louisiana nights. “Grillades” (pronounced gree-yahds) is a rich, dark gravy with braised meat served over creamy, garlic cheese grits. The Creoles served it for midday brunch or late night suppers after their elaborate balls. It is meant to cook for a long time until the meat is so tender that you can cut it with a fork. Bon appetit, and as we say in South Louisiana, “laissez les bon temps rouler” (let the good times roll)!
