How do you eat your grits?
« on: December 19, 2016, 06:33:15 PM »
   My wife got up and fixed us breakfast today and I noticed as we ate and got to thinking about different ways people eat their grits. I just put a pat of butter on the plate, covered it with grits till melted then stirred and ate mine. Becky added butter to hers then crumbled her bacon up into small pieces and mixed with her grits. I have seen people mix their grits with over easy eggs and stir everything up and eat them that way. Others mix hard scrambled eggs with their grits. Becky's aunt was raised in Alabama and should know better but she has spent so much time up in Northern Ohio she now adds sugar to hers - definitely not a traditional southern way to eat grits. When we have cheese grits with a fish fry I don't add anything else. Occasionally my wife will take cold grits, slice them into squares, dip in eggs then flour and fry them.

   How do you eat your grits?

I usually eat grits with fried eggs or soft boiled eggs.  Either way, I add the butter to the grits while they're cooking.  With fried eggs, I put the grits and eggs side by side, and with boiled eggs, I add the eggs to a bowl of grits.

   I think the results will show they are good with anything. Adding something to them is like icing a cake, adding ice cream to a slice of pie, or adding your favorite spice, sauce or dressing to you other favorite dishes.

I let them congeal just a bit and eat them from the edges in with a fork.

About as often as you would eat mashed potatoes with no salt, butter or gravy.   ;)

How right you are DanG.  :)
Magicman,yes,the box that the grits came in was opened. But the box of grits remains my lifetime supply of grits.   ;D  In fact,I tried to find that same box of grits in my cupboard. No luck. Maybe it vaporized after it realized it should not be this far North.

I defy you to find one topic on the forum started to praise mashed potatoes or asking "How do ya'll eat your mashed potatoes?"

My grandpa ate a bowl of grits for breakfast everyday without exception. I'm not everyday but probably 90% of my days start with a big bowl of grits thin and runny swimming in loads of butter and sugar.  8)
