Before this recipe, I'd never tried cheese grits before. I'd had grits before and thought they were just "ok", nothing special. But then I tried this recipe and all I can say is, WOW! They are absolutely delicious! I couldn't stay out of them. Cannot wait to serve them to my grandkids and see what they think. I suspect they'll love 'em, too.
A recipe that transforms cheese grits from that of Clark Kent to Superman with command of quantum physics. In other words just when you think you're likin' it, you find yourself lovin' it even more.
