Could instant grits be used with this recipe?
Such a yummy recipe. Lots of flavor and pretty easy to make too. I've made these grits for several gatherings and am always asked for the recipe.
My husband and I loved it. Just added more onions, garlic, and corn. Otherwise followed the recipe. Might add just a little heat with Texas Pete or small can of chopped chilies next time. Made it in 2 casseroles and froze one. Will add results to this post, after it's thawed and reheated. Worth a try.
A friend brought this dish to our southern themed potluck party and everyone raved about it. We all liked it so much we requested the recipe. Can't wait to try it myself. We thought the flavors were so well matched with one another. The ham just give it a little extra texture kick.
Sorry the other reviwer didn't enjoy hers. We had quite the opposite experience.
So disappointed with this recipe. It didn't taste bad, just boring and without dimension. I like each of the ingredients separately but together they don't shine. Asked my husband what he thought and he said, "it tastes like old leftovers." This was not an inexpensive dish to make and the payoff of a satisfying meal for the cost and effort just didn't happen. We continue to be a grit-loving family but no love back with this recipe!!
