Actually I meant those but I keep hearing about the grits you cook for a long time. So you are saying cook these longer than it says?

Stone ground grits can/do take up to 45 minutes to be really smooth and creamy.
These Quick grits (Hominy Grits) by Quaker will cook in 5 minutes...but get better IMO the longer they cook...I would not put them on my plate in under 15-20 minutes. The smoothness get better. The stone ground grits I had for breakfast this AM were in the pot for about 50 minutes according to the DW...So bottom line...Yes, cook the Quaker Quick Grtis longer than the 5 minutes stated on the package.

Enjoy!

You know what? I use to get grits at the cafeteria at work, just grits, topped with gravy and crumbled bacon and everyone with me thought I was out of my mind!!!! Now give that 'cafeteria' grits come no where close to the home made kind, but dang, when you are in a pinch.... it works! I just can't believe how many people balked at putting gravy on my grits!
