When traveling South my Mom always ordered grits, I tried them and reminds me of Cream of wheat, which needs sugar! Sorryyyyyy.

jpmcgrew, grits are great with sausage!! Never thought about trying with saurkraut but I don't think it would be bad. I love them in all the ways mentioned (except the one "with sugar" double yuck! Even as a kid I always ate Malto-Meal with butter, S&P; nothing else on it). Leftover grits can be done like fried cornmeal mush after it has sat in the fridge overnight.

The late Lewis Grizzard, syndicated columnist for The Atlanta Constitution and author of such classics as Elvis is dead and I don't feel so good myself and Don't sit under the grits tree with anyone else but me gave his recipe for grits.

Grits Billy Bob by Lewis Grizzard

First don't fool with no instant grits. The idiot who invented instant grits also though of frozen fried chicken, and they ought to lock him up before he tries to freeze dry collards.
Get yourself some home ground grits cook em slow and stir every chance you get. Otherwise you'll have lumps and you don't want lumps.
Salt and pepper and stir in enough butter to choke a goat. Fry some bacon and sausage on the side and crumble that in, and then come on top of that with all the cheese the law will allow. Grits Billy Bob ought to not run out of the pot. They ought to crawl. Serve hot. Cold Grits Billy Bob are harder than a steel belted radial.

Actually, I don't mind "Instant Grits" when I'm on-the-go on a cold winter's morn. No, they're nothing to write home about, but I still like 'em. Go figure.

My favorite way to enjoy cornmeal however, is more as what is known as either "hardened corn meal mush" or "polenta".

I just cook up a small saucepan of cornmeal & allow it to cool, then refrigerate. When it's completely solid, I cut it into portions (like brownies) & fry/saute it in lots of butter. Either use it as a side for fried eggs & breakfast meats, or as a base for sauteed mushrooms, etc., etc.
