grits i like savory, salt and pepper, cheese, fried egg on top,
but my housemates eat grits like oatmeal above
None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.
Grits I like butter, salt and pepper. If I'm feeling fancy I like to put bacon crumbles and a fried egg in there. mmmmm!
We don't them anymore here, but growing up mom fixed oatmeal a lot- oats were always w/ brown sugar, butter, and bacon. Rice was served w/ cinnamon, sugar and sausage.
Either way it sounds yum.

If I'm feeling decadent, I'll add some chopped almonds as well.

I also soak my oatmeal overnight in water with a touch of yogurt and besides getting rid of the phytic acid, it reduces cooking time (steel cut oatmeal in 5 minutes!!) and brings out a nutty flavor. And its so easy to do. The cooking times are partly what really sold me. I mean, it turns steel cut oats from a sunday breakfast thing into an everyday cook it quick meal.
We like steel cut oats w/honey and butter, and I make regular oatmeal with apples and cinnamon...yum! On the rare occassion I can get away with grits I make either cheese grits or grits and gravy...man I love grits...LOL

Other times I'll cook it with cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla, turbinado, and a bit of milk.
Now, i like it cooked with apples, and brown sugar, cinnamon and almond butter, and a tiny bit of milk.
