GRITS (trixie)

I have been eating this tasty Southern breakfast dish all week, so I decided to talk about grits in this post. I find it scary that a lot of people don't know what grits are so here's a picture.
It is a dish similar to oatmeal, but it consists of a cornmeal rather than oat base. Also unlike oatmeal, people usually add cheese to grits instead of fruit. When preparing grits, one should follow a crucial guideline (otherwise, the grits will be incredibly bland): use chicken stock rather than water when cooking the grits. I also find that stone-ground grits are better than the regular kind.

  1. I've made mine with water in the past and they've tasted fine but obviously I'll never know if the chicken stock way is better! I do love grits though, especially really cheesy ones!
