Default Eat My Grits

Okay. I'm trying to be a Southerner. So today I bought some grits. I don't know much about them. Teach me to like them. My Mom loved grits and when we traveled In The south she ordered them every breakfast.

How do you cook them and how do you season them. Or what do you mix in them to make them absolutely, irresistibly delicious.

Salt, pepper, butter and cheese is how I like grits. Wife prefers butter and sugar.

Stone ground grits are best but take longer to cook.

Two eggs over easy, sausage or bacon and grits, salt and pepper to taste, with a little butter. Mix thoroughly and use a couple of cat head biscuits to chase em around with. We have that for supper as much as breakfast. Don't get much better than that!!!

Some folks like them sweet, some prefer them savory. Butter and sugar if you like them sweet, butter, salt and pepper if you like them savory. Some biscuits and sausage gravy is good pairing along with some fresh (like right out of the hen house fresh) fried eggs sunny side up with the yolk just a little soft.

So if I don't like them I can feed this to the birds? That's a good idea.

Cat head biscuits? Am I right in thinking that just means huge biscuits?

Nobody really knows the origin of the name, but yes, they are large biscuits.

Grits on their own are an incredibly bland starch. So is rice- but look what you can do with rice! There are hundreds of recipe for grits- for breakfast or for dinner. I like mine with butter and salt- mixed with a cut up over easy egg is excellent, and/or with some cooked sausage crumbled in. You can do one heck of a dish with shrimp, grits and salsa verde.

There are a couple of varieties of grits- the instant/quick cooking kind, and the traditional about-15-20-minute kind. Read the box of what you bought for starters.

As a young sailor in 1969... I went into Meridian, Mississippi the first Saturday after getting stationed in VT7. I entered the only restaurant in town, sat at the counter and ordered ham and eggs. I really did not get to say how I wanted my eggs, home fries or anything as the waitress did not seem real friendly. My order come out she flung it on the counter and I said......"excuse me, what is this white stuff" (PS...I am from Pennsylvania) I want hash browns or home fries. Her reply was.........Yankee sailor boy....dem is grits, and when you learn to eat them like a normal person you can come back into MY restaurant!! She took my plate....opened the door and told me to "GET OUT"!! I am 65 years old and been eating grits since about....... the second time I went into the only restaurant in Meridian, Miss. I love grits with poached eggs on top...butter, salt and pepper.

A side of sliced, still warm from the garden, perfectly ripened tomato goes great with grits, breakfast, dinner or supper.
