Oh my, these grits are the best I've ever eaten and I love grits! We served this recipe at a December brunch and everyone loved them, Some ladies said it was their favorite thing we served. We followed the recipe as written and served them with the Cheesy Sausage and Croissant casserole and Bananas Foster Coffeecake with the sauce (from the same December 2014 issue of SL). We used stone ground grits such as Callaway Gardens sells. Delicious!
