1. Reduce oven temperature to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and grease liberally with nonstick cooking spray.
2. Shape the prepared grits into thin patties, about two inches in diameter, and place on prepared baking sheet. You should have about 12 patties. Bake for 10 minutes. Flip over and bake an additional 10 minutes.
3. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Add grits cakes and fry for about one minute on each side, or until browned. Remove from oil and drain on paper towels.
