      This is almost exactly how grits are prepared in a local restaurant in my town. The only difference being a combination of butter and oil is used and then the slices are lightly dredged in coarse cornmeal. (That's what the chef at the restaurant does.) Served with eggs, bacon and toast. You can keep your Egg McMuffins. Thank you for posting the recipe.
