Greatest Grits

Save

Grits can be a watery white side dish to fill out a plate of eggs, or they can be the creamiest, earthiest, most delicious corn cereal imaginable. The addition of cheese and/or garlic improves bland versions, but stone-ground grits slow-cooked with milk or cream and plenty of butter need no adornment. As a base for spicy shrimp or gravy-dripping meat, good grits are heaven-sent.
