    P4's Note:

    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.

      My original review is posted below, but I had to change the stars- sorry... I made it according to the recipe and decided that it definitely NEEDS the bacon. I used 2-3 strips, crumbled. Yummmmm...and this is a review coming from someone who actually *likes* grits!! My BF and I loved these- I hate to admit it, but between the two of us (it was mostly him, I swear!) we polished off the entire dish just last night. Stuff was hectic yesterday, so we didn't really eat it with a meal... just with a bagel & cream cheese once and again with crackers and brie. So tasty!! I basically followed the recipe- which was REALLY easy, but I used 2% milk rather than whole (it's what I had) and added about 4 slices of bacon. I think the bacon added a nice touch- we both hate spicey food, so at least for us it would be better than adding chili peppers. I also forgot to add the garlic until it was time to put it in the oven, so I just mixed in a little slow-roasted garlic that I had on hand. So great!!! An hour was perfect for cooking time- it came out with a lovely crust and creamy on the inside and great cheese flavor. I'm actually considering making this again right now... MMM!

      First off, I would like to say that I am southern and have *never* enjoyed grits. For some reason I decided I was interested in trying them again. The grits I am used to are simply cooked with water and then butter, salt, or sugar is added. I wanted a more flavorful version, and this was a great choice. Garlic and cheese - my favorites! Now I can truthfully say that I really enjoy grits (as long as I make them myself!!)
