Hey just picking, eat them anyway you want, my own daughter born and raised in SC doesn't like them, go figure. At least you are eating them and keeping the farmers busy.

Can a northern boy make a good bowl of grits?


Haven't read the whole thread, maybe this has been said, but grits are not "oatmeal" or "cream of wheat" they're corn. Grits: real grits, not instant, butter, salt and pepper. It's ok to crumble so sausage or bacon in it, or add cheese. Maybe use to sop up egg yolks. Its not a bowl of cereal. Every yankee I went to basic with at Fort Benning did just as you did with their first bowls of grits.

It's easy. Buy a package of it and follow the instructions, but I always just put salt and butter in mine, then serve them under my lightly fried eggs.

I had never had grits until I joined the military. At my first duty station my best friend introduced me to them at a friends house and this is how they made it. One of the best things I ever ate and I still eat them this way to this day.
My grandmother introduced me to it when I was a kid visiting her in Virginia, where she lived most of her life, though she was born in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia. But she always called it mush. I loved it, and made her make it for me whenever I visited thereafter. She just cooked it with salt, and put butter on it. Nothing else.

That show was not written by a Southerner, or that waitress character would never have popularized that term. Just a Northerner's idea of what a Southerner would say.

I believe grits has a excellent potential to be a great breakfast cereal. Stopped at a food co-op today and bought a 1 lb. bag for $2.99.

Grits, sliced banana and some light cream should be a good way to start the day. smile

Seriously, my wife wants to prepare grits as some of you have suggested. Will be expanding my culinary horizon.

Thanks

When I was growing up, we usually had red eye gravy with grits. If my mother didn't cook ham, then we had them with butter melted in them. Good either way.

Well, whatever you do, do not bother ordering grits at a Cracker Barrel restaurant. I have tried them at several locations and they have no clue as to making a decent pot of grits. They do not not make them with salt or butter, thinking that the customer can add salt to taste. Does not work worth a dang for grits. Salt must be boiled in the water, preferably with a generous portion of butter before stiring in the grits. Then make sure they are cooked long enough until good and soft, making sure they do not get too dry and stick to the bottom of the pot. They are very easy to make, just follow the directions on the box. May be seasoned with pepper if desired. Do not add sugar, syrup, honey, fruit, etc. Do serve with additional butter if desired. Also really good mixed with gravy, crumbled sausage or bacon. Avoid instant grits if possible. They are better than no grits, but a poor substitute. Quick grits do not take very long to cook and the taste is far better.

Being raised in the southern half of Alabama back in the 1960s, my father regularly made me breakfast before taking me to school. He always made a pot of grits. As an occasional treat, sometimes he would add a bit of cheddar cheese to them as they were cooking for cheese grits. Mighty good eating!

Other than with butter, salt and pepper, or redeye gravy, or as a "yolk vehicle", or in shrimp and grits, the only other acceptable way to treat grits is deep frying them for Alabama Hot Brown. Grits are stone ground grits made with chicken stock, bacon crumbles, and cheese in them. Poured in a loaf pan, and refrigerated. When they set up, you slice about an inch thick, dredge in buttermilk, and bread crumbs, and deep fry until golden brown. The crunchy on the outside, creamy on the inside, golden brown grit plank is served topped with thinly sliced smoked turkey, covered in a jalapeno cheese sauce, then topped with sliced tomato, and a couple of slices of crispy hickory smoked bacon.

I love grits. Real butter, black pepper and perhaps some grated cheddar cheese. Mighty fine eats with buttermilk biscuits.

all this talk about grits has got me to thinking.

my Grandmother, rest her Soul, used to have a grits tree in her backyard. yielded the biggest individual grits i ever saw. just a few would fill ya plumb up.

won't ever forget the Sunday dinner when the new out of town Preacher came to eat Sunday dinner with us, right after closing his serman at noon.

after the obligatory fried chicken, potatoes and gravy, and green beans, he was asked if he'd like to try some grits.

his response, attempting to be PC in rural Georgia, was that he had never eaten any, but perhaps now would be a good time to try one.
