Owing much to the inspiration and Southern Charm of Impera_Magna, I am venturing into the world of grits and posting my first grits' recipe! Use a regional onion available where you live: Vidalia, Maui, Walla Walla, etc. however a standard yellow onion will work fine. Please, feel free to substitute another good quality (goat) melting cheese: fontina, havarti, manchego, etc. Although this recipe wouldn't win a beauty contest, it makes up for it in taste and congeniality.
