mmmmmm....... You could make grit cakes - take the grits and mix with some cheese, roasted pablano peppers seeded and diced, salt, pepper, and diced spring onions - form into a patty and put in flour, then egg wash then breadcrumbs. Fry on each side. You can saute some onions and peppers until browned then toss in some shrimp and cook JUST until done. Serve with the grit cakes.
Or.......... you could just use as a starch side dish and mix with different cheeses, garlic, salt and pepper and heat in microwave (I say microwave because the cheese sticks really bad to a pan on the stove.
