Hi! Dinner tonight was grits, sausage, and eggs.
I was curious if anyone, besides myself, just cooks a pot of grits for lunch (I don't eat breakfast) and what tasty things you add.
I can't enjoy a bowl of grits without a big spoonful of mayo (no butter, just mayo*). When I'm enthusiastic, I saute an onion and make grits on top of that. And add cheese sometimes.
Mmmmm...

*I use mayo on toast instead of butter, just not a butter-fan.

Grits are the palette upon which a meal can be painted. A little of a colorful/flavorful food mixed into grits gives you an entire meal unto itself.

My favorite way to eat grits is with a bit of powdered chipotle (smoked, dried red ripe jalapenos) sprinkled on top. Failing that then a bit of hot sauce.

But if I'm frying ham/bacon/Spam I like to chop up some onion and/or sweet bell pepper and saute those in a bit of the drippings until tender and serve those over the top.

I've done the same with squash, tomatoes, even eggplant.

Anything you can serve on polenta you can serve on grits.

Just don't put sugar on them!

Oh yeah!! We love grits and usually eat them for brunch. We don't usually eat breakfast or lunch but combine the two and have brunch. Grits with eggs, toast and jam is one of our favorites.
