I love grits so much (I’ve said it before), and as the weather cools down here in the Bay Area, I just want to make them more frequently.
Cat has always said she doesn’t really like grits, but I got it out of her that the way she’s been served them before have been very unflavored and pretty plain; that is no way to eat grits!
I force fed her some of my cheesy sausage grits this morning and she was pleasantly surprised to find that she actually enjoyed it.
And although cheesy grits is one of the best ways, there are so many variations! I’ve rounded up some great recipes that you should try out the next time you make grits (which I hope will be soon).
*Fun Fact: When she was 10-13ish, only 1 out of every 5 batches of sugar cookie dough would make it past the butter/sugar stage and end up in the oven instead of Brie’s stomach. #ThisIsWhyI’mFat
P.S. She also set the microwave on fire during the same era while making home-made microwavable popcorn. Pro tip: Alton Brown is WRONG and you cannot put a paper bag with staples into the microwave; things will go badly.
P.P.S Happy ending. Even though to put out the fire she threw a bowl of water onto it and shorted all the circuits, the microwave started working after a week and her mom was non-the-wiser.
P.P.P.S But, I guess not any longer…
