My wife had never tried grits, so I made these for her. I used half water, half milk and stirred in crumbled bacon bits at the end. Not only were they fantastic that day, they were even better the next day when I formed the leftovers in to patties and browned them in some melted butter. Not the healthiest thing in the world by any means, but tasty!



I make grits all the time but found out that using velveeta cheese is way better than using cheddar cheese. You can put anything in grits, even some salsa, veggies, salmon... almost anything. This is a real southern dish that will warm you up!



My two year old loves grits this way. They are the best. You can adjust the seasoning to taste and I recommend you try different types of cheese for variety.
