I have a large sack of milled grits in my freezer that I'd like to use up, but I'm the only one in the family that likes them. I'm not about to spend the 45 minutes it takes to cook them to do one serving at a time. The kids love the "regular" fine white kind, and I'm wondering if I grind the milled stuff in the blender will it make them cook faster and also give them a texture more like what the kids are used to. Anyone know?

I don't know the answer, but I wouldn't be afraid to just try it out with a serving or two (that's only like 1/4 - 1/2 cup, right?). That's how it works with oats I know to make them "quick-cook" by just whirling them in the blender.

Also, if you eat dairy and your kids like cheese, adding cheese to the grits might make them more appealing. I love grits...and no one else in my family likes them either. I've had them with mild peppers and cheese, and they were
But your dc's might not like them with peppers and cheese!

The texture more than the taste is the issue w/ the milled grits. I've had grits w/ cheese, but never thought about peppers -- yum!

Success! I ground the grits and they cooked in 15-20 min. Ds wouldn't try them, but dd loved hers w/ butter and salt and asked for more. I had mine w/ mild chiles and shredded cheddar -- absolutely delicious (thanks for that idea tinybutterfly)!
