Throw away those Instant Grits!!! I'm the original northerner that had never heard of grits until I lived in Charleston, SC for 13 yrs. Like everyone else I started out eating them like Cream of Wheat, with butter and sugar. Then I developed this recipe. It is for the people who don't like grits or have never tried grits, this will make a grits lover out of you!
