I first tasted grits as an adult and was underwhelmed. But I really started to enjoy them with added ingredients, so I started thinking of how to improve them for breakfast. I realized that I had also disliked oatmeal made with water, so taking a cue from my mother, I prepared them with milk. I really liked the results, but not the cooking of them. So I threw everything into the rice cooker - yummy grits with no fuss. This recipe can be doubled readily.
- Put all ingredients into rice cooker bowl and stir to combine. Set to porridge cycle.
- About 10 minutes into the cycle, stir. (I often don't get around to this, and they turn out fine),.
- I serve with a pat of butter and a spoonful of cherry or other preserves.
