Fried flounder, hushpuppies, cheese grits, and coleslaw.  Oh yeah, and sweet tea, too.

You buttered before toasting. Makes sense.
I'm in the hut for a new toaster oven myself.

Finding a good toaster oven will not be an easy task because the timers on the new ones leave a lot to be desired.  The only ones with a decent timer that were reasonably priced that we found were Oster.

I've tried 3 so far and still looking. My old toastmaster oven works great but apparently because it's 25 years old it doesn't "fit" in the kitchen scheme anymore..

Not a bad thing to do that to a helpless egg. The bad thing is telling how good it is and I should try it.

Pete, I see yours are gluten free, wheat free, and dairy free.  Isn't that all corn? 

These are the ones I see around here. I was tempted to buy them just to save the next guy. :)

Let the ones that buy that stuff suffer thier ill fate.  Them Flat Landers come up here and try to change our eating habits. ::)   A diet of bread,meat and cheese is good for ya. That stuff was not even in our stores 30 years ago. I have no idea what the state of Maine is coming too. Than we let that cracker barrel store in my great state of Maine. I do not want to be asked,do you want grits with that? ::) I would have to ask that person how long have they been in the state of Maine?

JohnW,

They would have but I don't think they had instant grits back then.

I have spent a lot of time down south, grits were kind of an East Texas east thing, central Texas on west not so much.

I dearly love my fish and sea food, but even in the deep south, have never seen grits served with fried fish, that would just ruin the appetite, I'm thinking.

Starmac,

 grits, and normally cheese grits, were a staple side fish for any fish fry in Florida. From central Fla south swamp cabbage was also standard fare but it was unavailable further north.

 We serve them (grits) here when we have a fish fry for my wife's retired teacher luncheons and grits are always a bit hit. Some attendees will eat 3-4 helpings.

 If you are a hard core grit hater you will not like them with anything but if you are more cultured and willing to give them a fair shake, try them with fish too. :D
