There is nothing better in the morning than steaming hot grits...well, coffee is kind of hard to beat, but that is more of a necessity. To step it up, add shredded cheese, some Cayenne & lots of butter. La used some hickory smoked cheddar that ruled.

What's a grit? A Southern staple of small broken grains of corn. They were first produced by Native Americans centuries ago. They made both "corn" grits and "hominy" grits. These are corn grits. Give them a try if you never have. They are usually in the grocery store near the breakfast cereal.

    Hate to argue with wineguy, but, polenta is cornmeal, not grits. The texture of polenta is a finer grain.
