I am a southern girl. I am GRITS -- a Girl Raised In The South -- and I love grits -- warm, buttery, cheesy, just enough salty grits!
I've been eating grits for as long as I can remember. In the fall and winter, the breakfast staple was definitely a piping hot bowl of grits. Sometimes those grits were instant, pulled from a box of Quaker instant grits packets -- butter, cheese, bacon bits. Just as many mornings, though, they were quick cook in the pot with a big ol' pat of butter, maybe a little grated sharp cheddar cheese. Makes me melt just thinking about those yummy grits.
My daughter likes grits, too, especially the cheesy grits. No instant for me now. It's so easy to mix up a pot of grits, creamy smooth, right on the stove top. I tend to make them just on the weekends and for special occasion breakfasts, such as Christmas morning.
Here's one of my favorite cheesy grits casserole recipes! Enjoy!
