    I like to cook my grits in milk instead of the water. Makes the grits much creamier

    Made a delicious and hearty breakfast with scrambled eggs, biscuits, strawberry freezer jam, and fruit. I love grits, and this is a great recipe. Didn't read the recipe and ended up stirring in the parsley and paprika. Good, but next time I will garnish correctly. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    This was okay. I usually love Paula's recipes. I thought this was a little bland though it was better the next day reheated. I would use spicy breakfast sausage next time. I prefer having grits and sausage separate, but this may be just what you a looking for. Thanks for posting.

    We love this. It is certainly comfort food for a cold winter night. We always buy stone ground grits when we get a chance and they really make this dish.

    Tagged this recipe for the Easter Egg Hunt 2009. It was a nice change from regular cheese grits casserole. Served with recipe#142115. And both were really enjoyed.

    I used a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes instead of the green chilies and used Provolone cheese since that's what I had, but it still turned out really good. I think I like it better the next day, though.
