serves 4.) When the water is boiling, add the salt and slowly stir in the grits. Simmer, stirring frequently, until the grits
are done. "Done" means thick and creamy.
After the grits are done add 1 cup or so (more if you
like it cheesy) of grated cheese. You could also add pepper (cayenne works fine, if you like it hot), You can also use the
cheese powder packets from boxed macaroni and cheese.
Add as much cayenne pepper, paprika, chili
powder, and ground cumin as your taste buds will permit to your basic very tasty boiled grits. Let cool in a loaf pan, slice
and prepare as Fried grits. Serve this one with salsa and some beans.
Add garlic powder or even
better, crushed roasted garlic to grits, good with cheese grits for garlic-cheese grits. Add jalapenos for
After the grits are done pour them into an ungreased loaf pan. Let this cool until the grits
are firm, usually 30 minutes or more. Turn the pan over so the "grits loaf" slides out, slice about ½ inch thick. Mix some
flour, salt, and pepper together on a plate and dip the grits slices (both sides) in the flour mixture. Put a quarter of an
inch of oil in a skillet, and fry the slices (medium-high heat) for about 5 minutes (until golden brown). Flip and do the
same on the other side.
Sausage fried grits.
Prepare Basic Boiled Grits and set aside. Cook some sausage, breaking
it up into small pieces. Drain fat and stir the sausage into the grits. Beat an egg and add it to the mixture. Pour
into a loaf pan and put it in the refrigerator until firm. Turn out the grits, prepare as for fried grits.

chopped jalapeno pepper, to taste (maybe start with 3 tbsp), salt and pepper to taste. Pour into a greased baking dish, bake
at 350 degrees about 35 minutes (top will lightly browned).
