Grits in the South

61 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

My family has always honored this as a "Southern" rule for eating grits, and was curious if others practiced it.

We have always practiced that if you're eating grits alone as a meal, then sugar (we typically go with brown sugar & cinnamon) can go in it. If the grits are as a side with your meal, then salt, pepper, and butter go in it.

This is not an end all, be all rule by any means, but I find that I practice it religiously.

Anyone else?

I have had all these things in grits, salt, pep, heavy cream, butter, red eye gravy, gouda cheese, cheddar cheese and cayenne pepper. (obviously not at the same time).

Never sweetened them however.

that makes sense as your going with savory for meal time

personally i still prefer cream of wheat better for breakfast or stand alone. Grits are better with other stuff.

My rule with grits is that whenever I happen to encounter it, it must be immediately placed in the trash.

IMO Grits are nasty as hell without butter and sugar...

Just like unsweet tea.

Mush>Grits

Mush is made from corn meal. IMO it taste better and is smoother. It's so very good.

Pepper, butter, little bit of salt. Red eye gravy if i'm having country ham with.

When i eat at waffle house i order both grits and hashbrowns with my bacon & eggs.

After i was kicked out of the house at 16, i pretty much lived on grits for awhile. My buddies started calling me that and it was one of my early nicknames.

G R I T S is also Girls Raised In The South, also great to eat. GritsRgreat.
