How to Make Really Good Grits

January 26, 2010

If you’re from the south and have a MawMaw, or MiMi, or GiGi, or Grandmama, who can cook, (and you’ve paid attention)then you already have grits down pat. But, for the rest of you. Here’s the “how to”!
I like Stone ground grits, preferably yellow ones. I’m a fan of the Lakeside brand. Follow the recipe on the bag for the number of servings you’re making. But, substitute chicken broth for the water. Salt them to taste, add some butter,(homemade even) and let them cook according to the pack directions. When they are done cooking, add a little bit of heavy cream. Let it simmer for a minute or so more. And you have really creamy, rich grits.
I’ve also had success adding grated cheese and cream cheese. Good stuff!
Eat them for breakfast, eat them when you have breakfast for dinner, or with shrimp and grits. Just be sure and eat them! They are really good!
Well, now you know. Just in case your MawMaw didn’t teach you, Lula Lola did! 🙂

    I’m a veggie, so veggie broth instead of water, never thought to add cream, and adding cream cheese sounds too yummy! Can’t wait to try this tomorrow. We usually use Quaker Old-Fashioned Grits and we’ve added everything from cinnamon and sugar to maple syrup. Have you ever tried polenta? Just wondering. Great to know there are other grits lovers out there.

    I’d really reccomend Lakeside Yellow Grits! They are so good! Try them with veggie broth! I’m sure they’ll be good. They are so good with a little cream. We actually had shrimp and grits last night!
