Are the "ll"s the ell sound or is it of appreciated Spanish derivation with a 'y' sort of sound?

(And was the classic version on grits or rice?)

    my phonetic spelling might be off, but this is close

    gri-yahds

      gree-yodds or gree-yahds

      oh, and i'm no expert on Cajun cuisine, but i'm about 99% sure it's traditionally served over grits.

        It's the "y" sound, but of French derivation, not Spanish. "gree-yahdz"

          Gree-yhads and grits is a traditional Creole brunch dish. Not Cajun. New Orleans.
          Plain white grits, cooked fairly stiff. Although now, many people are serving it with cheese grits, or cheese grits soufflee.
