Need to use up grits

I have an unopened pack of instant grits. I'm not sure why I bought it . Any ideas about how to finish it would be really appreciated.

How about some boiling water over them, stir and eat with some butter pooled on top! Before you eat the grits make some great home made biscuits, some country ham, some eggs over easy, slice up a good tomato to go with, and of course coffee of your choice with maybe some orange juice. Enjoy the grits! :)

I was thinking the same thing AuntDot....I would have to throw cheese, crumbled up bacon, sausage, Cajun seasoning, Hot Sauce...anything and everything to get past that Instant taste! Many years ago, my young bride brought home instant grits...I told her if she ever brought them in the house again...I would file papers on her!!! She's still here

Something no one else seems to have addressed...why the urgency to cook the grits? They really don't go bad, so why not save them and cook them when you actually want grits? Just came to my mind since I'm not always in the mood for grits, but they're there when I want them.

Spirit, look here for a brief description of "grits." They are sometimes an acquired taste, but I really enjoy them. I prepare them for breakfast and as a side dish in a similar manner as polenta. Herbs/spices (garlic, parsley, basil, etc.) can be added as well as grated cheeses.

Ooooo yes!! I don't do the can routine...just spread them on a plate. Cut up and fry in butter. Poached or fried egg on top maybe...Sometimes a couple of spoonfulls of left over red beans...Or what about all of the above on a toasted english muffin...And a sausage patty thrown in there somewhere/sometimes/somehow....Did I leave out soft scrambled eggs, and Louisiana Hot Sauce somewhere in the mix...."These are just a few of my favorite things"...
