    Trinkets's Note:

    Nothing goes better with Alligator Grillades! These delicious grits are great with poached eggs or even fried chicken. Although the recipe does not call for the addition of cheese, I have made this with cheddar and it’s wonderful. The recipe comes from The Flavor of New Orleans Cookbook.

      These are great! I haven't had grits since I left my home town in the South. Had never had them with jalapeno before. Just did a pinch of ground thyme because I didn't have fresh. I will make these again with even more jalapeno because these were really mild. Loved it, thanks!!!
