    OK - I've ALWAYS had them with butter, salt, pepper, and more butter!;f

    BUT - when I went off to basic training back in 1992, I saw a bunch of those southern folk eatin' up theior grits with sugar and even sometimes cold milk.

    WTF?!?

    Well - to each his/her own. I actually did try them this way. It wasn't bad, but it sure as hell wasn't grits! (at least not to me)

    How do you guys eat them? With fried tomato (yum)? With your over-easy eggs mixed in (more yum)?

    Scrapple anyone??;a

    When I was growing up we almost always ate ours with butter, sugar, and a little bit of cream. Once it a great while we'd have it with butter and salt.

    Grits with Butter, Salt & Pepper, and Bacon crunched on top.


    Are you sure those were southern boys with the sugar and milk?

    I prefer grits to be savory rather than sweet, so I go butter, salt and pepper (and cheese if it's handy!)

    I can understand treating it like cereal, because, well, it is cereal. I do eat Cream of Wheat with sugar and milk. I imagine it is pretty similar.

    My wife and father-in-law do that. Looks funky, but it tastes good.

    Wow. There are a lot of cheese useres in their grits. That one is new to me also - however it does sound good!

    A very sharp chedder. Or - I wonder if a real "bluey" blue cheese crumbled into it would make for a good taste experience?^8
