This divine recipe is from The Square Table Cookbook from Oxford, Mississippi. Cheese grits are great but to kick it up a notch try these with the salty, tangy Stilton and the heat and great flavor of jalapeno. Serve with fried turkey or catfish to complete the Southern, down-home theme for supper or serve with ham and biscuits for brunch!
