Yummy! This made a great change of pace from our usual Sat. morning grits. I used reduced fat butter, which I would NOT recomend. It was still delicious, but the reduced fat butter made the frying process difficult to manage.

This was fantastic. I made as directed but just used a vegetable spray instead of the butter and sprinkled a little cinnnamon on at the very end. It is difficult to find a recipe that the whole family will eat, but they loved this one. Thankyou for the recipe.
