Being from the south, I'm very fond of grits. I really love this side dish where it is baked with cheese and garlic. This is excellent served at a brunch or with fried fish or baked ham.

PetitFour: please forgive me. This is a secondhand review. I cannot eat grits to save my life. Well, maybe only to save my life. But DH, the Alabama lad, says that these grits are the best he's ever had. All I can say is that it looked nice and sort of fluffed up nicely and were easy to make. I don't think you can go wrong with undercooking or overcooking. I added the jalapenos which were, apparently, delicious.
