SO, being from NY, I could not imagine this combo. After one taste out to eat one night, I was sold; may not be southern but my family loves my northern version!

Super smooth and satisfying, this recipe could easily be doubled for a potluck or party. Next time I may add butter to the grits for an even creamier consistency. Yum! The Test Kitchen
