Ok......im not from the south, but I do enjoy grits and when i found these recipes while surfing the internet I just had to copy them to share with you.
Your Basic Very Tasty Boiled Grits.

1 cup grits, 4 cups water, salt and butter to taste. (One cup of
uncooked grits 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.
Cheese grits.
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.
Red-hot grits.
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.
Garlic grits.
Add garlic powder or even better, crushed roasted garlic to grits, good with cheese grits for garlic-cheese grits. Add jalapenos for
garlic-cheese-jalapeno grits.
Fried grits.
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 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.
Jalapeno grits.
Take your basic very tasty boiled grits, add 2 cups shredded cheese, 1 stick of butter ( cup), 3 beaten eggs, 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).
Grits Casserole.
Fry some hamburger, onion, garlic, and crushed red pepper, add cooked beans with the liquid, put in the bottom of a casserole pan, pour a recipe of jalapeno grits over the top, bake at 350 degrees about 35 minutes. You can also make this with sausage (of any kind).
