I don't like 'em. Tastes like chewed-up wet popcorn.

Now polenta, I like. Go figure.

You grits lovers, please don't shoot me!

Ain't never had grits that I didn't like
My favorite though are savory grits, as in shrimp and grits with andoullie sausage gravy. Or just plain grits with tons O butter and pepper when I have an unfortunate leftover, err... hangover in the morning
(sure does make your belly feel better).......

I love grits... polenta.... mush.... whatever you want to call it... savory, butter, cheese, garlic, country gravy, sausages, bacon,

Try making them with chicken stock sometime.... really tasty, tho not a breakfast dish that way.

Sattie - "grits" are just regular "stone-ground cornmeal". Look for that.

Ah..not to be disagreeable but stone ground meal (or any type of meal) and grits are two different animals..Both corn products..but not the same.
