I will never again make grits using milk. Didn't like the taste of the grits. Prefer using water or chicken broth.

These were pretty good. I used two eggs as suggested (it definately needs them) but other than that, made the recipe as is. I will definately make these again but next time I think I will divide...

Interesting and yummy. These weren't runny like grits I've had before (let me freely admit now that I've only rarely had grits; I have no idea how they're "supposed to" be). I can see why the ...

These are trouble (in a good way). I liked that I could make them ahead, and that they were easy to assemble. They were a welcome alternative to mashed potatoes. Tonight I served them with brai...
