The recipe says to use stone ground grits, not instant grits. At the first grocery store, I found only instant grits. In the pouring rain, I stopped at another grocery store and found quick grits. I am still not sure these are the grits described in the book but I bought them anyway.
My husband isn't fond of grits! He's from Minnesota and I don't think grits are a part of any hot dish up there!! However, I think the cheese and butter in these changed his mind. He had two servings.
These are so creamy and delicious. I'd love to try these with different kinds of cheese. Normally you think of grits for breakfast. These are the perfect side dish for lunch or dinner. If you're in a hurry you could easily skip the step of melting the cheese in the oven and serve these right from the stove top!
Thanks to Jen of Gourmified for choosing this recipe, these are a winner! You can find the recipe on her site and links to the other Club Baked bakers here!
