Runny egg and butter is my favorite for grits, I also very much enjoy butter and maple syrup.

I put homemade preserves in oatmeal, so why not jelly in grits?
 
2021-09-24 6:04:30 AM  
a small dab of jam wouldn't go amiss but TFA looks like they used half a farking jar no thank you.

me, I'll typically treat it as congee/jook/zook (up to and including: minced raw garlic, shredded fresh ginger, green onyon, fresh cilantro, skrimps) - but also such as butter and cheese are allowed.

also-also, thread fails until McGrits weighs in.

The Crepes of Wrath: I put homemade preserves in oatmeal, so why not jelly in grits?


Grits are *not oatmeal or (shudder) cream of wheat.

Sweetening grits is an unnatural act.  The natural state of grits is "grillades and grits," "shrimp and grits," cheese grits, etc.

Savory, not sweet.  Those who add sugar, jelly, or syrup are either trailer trash, lower lifeform Yankees, or Texans.

And we all know what God said about the Sabine River.

Skrimps sauteed in butter and olive oil with pepper, garlic, tajin and a little lemon goes nicely over a big bowl of grits
 
2021-09-24 7:26:45 AM  
Cheese? Yes. Sausage? Yes. Eggs? Yes. Jelly or maple syrup is a Yankee thing. Y'all motherf*ckers need Jesus.

Butter and salt.   That's all you need.

If you line a loaf pan with plastic wrap, then turn your plain grits out into it, and chill, it forms a loaf. Said loaf can be sliced into half inch thick slices that you fry up in bacon grease till brown, topped a bit of maple syrup.  Yum yum

I was traveling once with some Navy buddies and we stopped at a diner for breakfast.  I had bacon &, eggs and got a side-order of grits, Tom got an omelet with a side-order of grits, Brian wanted the Southern experience, so he ordered a bowl of grits ... and got a side-order of grits.

Why not.  People put every other stupid thing into grits.  I can't stand grits in any form, which is my problem and shouldn't impact your enjoyment of grits in any way.

What I've found about grits pushers is that they don't like to take no for an answer.  "You don't like grits, that's because you haven't tried my grits."  "These are made, with this or that, and this technique, try them!"  Then sure enough, I don't like their grits either, at which point they become insulted, and make some snarky comment about how I probably like polenta like some kind of snobby northerner, and that I'm some kind of southerner hating hypocrite.

/No, I don't like polenta either.

I guess I'm a bad southerner in this instance, but I'm pretty ambivalent about grits. As a breakfast side, I will prefer biscuits (and gravy) or pancakes 100% of the time.

So I really only eat grits in obviously savory settings, like shrimp and grits, etc. And then I want there to be no mistake about the savory, so we're talking jalapeño cheese grits or some such.

Same.  I don't eat them at home that often but do when I go out for breakfast/brunch.  I've been making breakfast potatoes quite a bit lately.  They go well with the home made sausage and resulting sausage gravy.

But tomorrow, thanks to the cooler weather and dry air - it's breakfast outside off the grill (weber - have one of those griddle things for the charcoal grill).

I've never tried to extract the juice from beauty berries.  There's loads of them in the Sabine NF and they're about to start coming in (along with the hickory nuts).

eh, if there's some form of my cookery that someone ain't like, I stop after 2 tries and move on. and you're not wrong, I make all sorts of polenta (even to the point of fried mush for breakfast) in addition to grits. (no, not at the same time, that's just silly!)

me, I'll give any food at least 3 tries, but that's just me. there are very few foods on this planet I dislike (shiso/perilla and azuki/redbean do both well fit the brief) but I am generally open to anything.

You kind of hit on the problem at the end there. We grits lovers frequently meet people who claim not to like grits but have never really tried them, and they will often love polenta. So we are like, "please, here, try this awesome thing. We know you will like it based on things you've said!" And when they try a good bowl of grits, full of butter and cheese and maybe bacon, they'll suddenly discover that they love that salty creamy goodness.

But then, occasionally we meet someone like you who genuinely doesn't like grits despite having tried many versions of it and - while that's totally inconceivable - our overzealous  nature can make for a bit of an awkward moment.

/ Yes, I know that polenta and grits are technically different. But, they're not that different.

My wife likes polenta and grits.  She keeps trying different methods of preparation to get me to enjoy them.  It just doesn't work.  Between the texture and the flavors.  They make me gag.
 
2021-09-24 9:22:16 AM  
My method for making awesome grits is to use way more liquid (preferably a flavorful one like stock and/or dairy) and to cook the grits for far, far  more time than most recipes call for.

The great thing is that there's really no overcooking the grits, unless you really like a gritty, more toothsome texture. So long as you're not overdoing the salt content as whatever liquid you're cooking with reduces, and so long as you don't let them burn on the bottom of the pot, the grits should turn out fine.
