Hubby says these grits are fit for a Southern Tea Room. No higher compliment than that! It is not a mistake to use quick cooking grits, and cook them for almost half an hour. These grits have body!

    This was the first time I've ever made grits. I wanted a savory snack so I caramelized onions and mushrooms in one pan and browned chunks of sausage in another while stirring my grits. I did stir in about a half cup of sharp cheddar cheese at the end. It was super easy and super EXCELLENT. Great Friday night movie snack. In the morning, the leftovers will get a fried egg with a nice runny yolk on top.
