So, I’m sure most of you know by now that Forrest is from North Carolina. And, like any good Southern boy would be, be grew up eating grits quite often. Me? I had no idea what they were until the first time I went to North Carolina and we went to a little diner for breakfast.
Luckily, they weren’t gross like I was expecting, and I’ve enjoyed eating them since. We sometimes buy the microwavable kind, but a few months ago, we decided to try making our own from scratch.
It actually turned out quite yummy, but was more like a grits casserole! We added spicy chorizo, green peppers, onions, and a few spices, and added that to the traditional cream, buttery flavor, and created something rather delicious. We ended up eating the entire batch (oops) and Jack was obsessed with them! I used almond milk and Earth Balance buttery spread, just so I didn’t feel bad feeding them to Jack, and they sure were tasty.
Have you ever eaten grits before?
