Speaking as a fellow Brit - the grits I've tried over here look and taste exactly like wallpaper paste. Totally disgusting....like the candied yams idea....Eeeeuuuuuuwwwww. However, I may have just had really bad grits, and would be willing to try them again if cooked by KitchenElf

Grits shoud be creamy when cooked right & Rainee is correct...you have to add butter, salt, & pepper or they have no taste at all! Another way to serve them is with cheese melted in them.

Aha! that's probably what I did wrong then - we've had them at buffet-type brunches, where you help yourself. I didn't know that you added stuff to them - silly me! I must try them again some time.... :D

Biloben and Paint, you are not alone in not loving grits.

I grew up in the North, and no one, absolutely no one, made grits.

You did not find them in restaurants, and you could not find them in the groceries. (They even make instant grits, although most people tell me they are inferior to the McCoy. Don't ask me, I cannot tell the difference between not very good regular grits and poor instant grits.)

Having happily lived in the South for a number of years, and enjoyed almost all of its dishes, I still just do not get grits.

But then again I don't get Marmite or Vegemite either.

I guess it is something you have to grow up with.

But hushpuppies, that is another matter altogether.

crewsk - that's my favorite - take some plain grits add some or more like LOTS of cheese, salt, pepper and some butter - now that's a good breakfast!! I love a poached egg on top of my grits.

auntdot, I'm with you. To me, grits just taste like chewed up stale popcorn.
