YUM YUM YUM YUM. MISS PAULA HAS DONE IT AGAIN. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved these grits! The milk made the so creamy. But being a southern girl, I added more butter. Paula would be proud ;) I also added a little pepper to mine too. Even my picky children loved them. This is a definite keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
These are fantastic grits!! The milk in the recipe gives them a delightfully delicious cheese flavor ~ nothing that overpowers, but something that is just .. perfect! I make this recipe with homemade chicken stock in place of the water to oomph up the flavor even more, as well as oomphing up the health aspect of it. We use grits that we ground from a local mill - good ole old timey grits. You can't go wrong here! item not reviewed by moderator and published
As the episode was entitled, I'm "hailing to the chief (Paula because these grits are absolutely delicious! I made these this weekend and the whole family loved them! Only recipe I will ever use! Thanks again, Paula! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best grits I have ever eaten or made!!! Love this recipe, especially with scramble eggs with cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Absolutely the best. I've been using this recipe since I found it several years ago. If you like creamy, smooth, tasty, grits this is the recipe for you. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The nice thing about this recipe, besides how great the grits are, is that you can jump off from this recipe and add ingredients like cheese, chopped green onions, cinnamon and sugar and allow to set, then cutting squares and baking. Grits are a staple here in the south. They are not just a breakfast food. Paula's recipe is terrific but remember to use regular grits and not quick cooking grits. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love grits and this recipe was super easy. I appreciated the tip to add water as needed as the grits were cooking. item not reviewed by moderator and published
