Mmmmmm....grits...and other cool southern food

I love grits about any way you want to make 'em. There's classic grits, a bowl of creamy goodness with just salt and butter. There's breakfast-cereal grits, with butter, sugar, and a little stream of milk. There's fried grits, cooked, chilled overnight in a loaf pan, cut in slices and browned in a skillet. And then there's the pinnacle of grit cookery: cheese grits casserole, made with processed garlic cheese, eggs and milk.


I was glad to see that grits made the "must eat" list from Gardens & Guns, although I question the whole shrimp thing. But I know some folks get fancy with their grits. I'm more of a purist.

The list is all about southern foods, and it just may introduce you to some local restaurants in your own area. I know I've gotten a list in Alabama to check out.

So what's your favorite from the list?

Never had them. Milo's tea, great. Milo's burger, eh. Will have to go for The Experience with the fries soon.
