ISO a good grits recipe

I've been looking for a good old fashioned, down south recipe for grits. I used to have them all the time and I'm starting to miss them. Also, I want to make them for my GF to show her that there is a difference between "instant grits" and real grits. She says they taste bad and I wanna proove her wrong like I have with quite a few things I have cooked her.

Any ideas are appreciated! Thanks!

I follow the recipe on the grits cantainer except I use milk instead of water. Many times I add cheese, too. Garlic is certainly an option to add.

Is this what you had in mind or are you looking for something like Shrimp and Grits?

I use stone ground grits, whole milk, heavy cream, and butter. Yum.

I like the stone ground...so much more corn flavor...However I have eaten wash tubs of Quaker hominy grits...

Clutch...either one would beat light years ahead of ....I don't know if I can even type the word...Instant grits...there I did it!

Just follow the directions..water is fine..milk is better..and cook longer than the box says..adding milk/water until they are creamy...If you go the stone ground grits then expect to spend at a minimunm of 30 minutes cooking them....Since she has an immature palate on grits..I would suggest the Quaker grits....
Your GF is a smart lady by the way...those ...ah "other" grits are just plain nasty!!

I've never even had instant grits, to my knowledge. I think I would notice the difference.

Don't be tempted.... keep your money in your pocket...leave "them" on the shelf. Trust Uncle Bob!!!

OK, here you go.
Get at least Quaker grits. Quick cooking is fine.
For 6 servings.
2C water
2C milk
salt
Bring to a simmer. Add 1C grits and cook stirring until thick.
Add 1C cheddar cheese.
Serve with country ham and redeye gravy.
OR
Add 1/2C chopped crispy bacon and shrimp for the classic low country shrimp and grits.

Cando...

It is too early in the week to be talking about country ham and red-eye....
I have to wait till Sat, morning for my next ration.

That was bad enough...then you had to go and say Shrimp & Grits...
Lets see...Monday Tuesday...Saturday!!!

Thanks a MILLION everyone! Gonna try tomorrow, today was an exausting day and the hunny is picking up some Chinese. We only go to the family run one around here. It's an extra 3-4 mile drive, but they beat the **** outta the chain "wok" places (not to change the subject. LOL!!).

Once again, thanks for the help. I'll try prolly this weekend when we're both off and let y'all know how it goes.
