When I first looked at this recipe I thought first off that I'd use this and use that but because it was the first time I've made it and the first review I decided (thankfully) to make as written, which I did. I would not change a thing about this recipe. If you love grits, which I do, you need to try this recipe. Just delicious and could be used as a side for many things. We're having it with fish tonight. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014
