    I was thinking of ordering some to try it until you posted that.

    Go into any Army chowhall for breakfast and they will have grits.

    That's just a slick way to charge four times as much. $$$

    I love grits, but even I will admit they have very little flavor of their own. I like to mix up my overeasy eggs in them and add butter and salt and pepper (and red eye gravy if I cooked ham).

    My wife likes cream of wheat -- I always thought of it as northern grits.

    Grits are corn - cream of wheat is of course wheat - oat meal is oats - but they are all sort of similar.

    She grew up in Minnesota - and it was a common breakfast item especially on those really cold days. Then the leftovers were a side dish at dinner - since the dog wouldn't eat it there was always some left over.

    I am from South Dakota - we had oat meal - which is like grits and cream of wheat except it is oats.

    Wife doesn't want the instant stuff - doesn't taste as good - and even though we have been in Houston since 1987 - she still wants to eat it a few times a year.

    NEVER TRY AND COOK EXPIRED CREAM OF WHEAT it will taste bland and sort of gross - just like grits (or cream of wheat).

    My wife will want some cream of wheat - normally a cold day (like 45) and she will have it as a snack around 8:00PM.

    Grits, cream of wheat and oat meal are what poor folks use to eat way back when - better than starving -- plain without all the butter and brown sugar.

    We eat it now - not because it tastes good but because it feels like home.

    But then if you put enough butter, sugar, brown sugar and milk on any of them - they don't really taste all that bad. They have sort of a sweet buttery flavor - tastes just like mom use to make it!

    I bet it is also common in prison - so then it must be good!

    I wouldn't be surprised if prison food is better than Army chow, those guys can sue if conditions are bad.

    Well i think the north managed to put quite a few southern folk in the ground .. by using our heads..

    Never tried dukes.. and i would do so.. the grits deal i hope is not similar.. locally i prefer a grocery chain sandwich spread to any national mayo..

    Try grits with butter, salt & pepper, and red eye gravy. Delish.

    So the guy makes an offhand smart remark about Northerners (Yankees) and that is your response?

    Sure, there's something to be proud of; gloating about Americans killing other Americans in the Civil War and who racked up the larger body count, as though there is some moral superiority to that...

    It was a rude thing to say, and completely inappropriate to the thread, which is about sandwiches for God's sake....

    I only eat bacon sandwiches with Miracle Whip, not mayo.

    Also my preference. Bacon, white bread and miracle whip. I would add egg, before I'd add lettuce and tomato.

    Toast, for some reason. BLT is much better on toast.....

    Miracle whip is nasty; Dukes for the win, Hellmans or BluePlate as the runner ups...

    As for bacon, in my old age I am getting lazy, I use the Hormel Black Lable pre-cooked, it's a little more expensive than the raw but it's good bacon and it's convenient.

    For some unfathomable reason, I read the thread title, out loud, as:
    Bacon, Lettuce, Tomato and Octopus?....

    I expected a misprint and a thread about Bachman Turner Overdrive.

    Thanks but no onion on my BLT. But if I get a craving for a BLT before 11:00am I might add a fried egg and call it breakfast.
