I like it.


As a non-southerner, I never tasted grits until well into adulthood. But in my experience, grits are eaten salty, and cream of wheat is eaten sweet, so there's no real comparison.

Cream of Wheat - made with whole milk, served with a pat of butter and some sugar. That is some pretty plan dreck. And it's dang good too, especially on a cold morning or evening. Heck this is making me think about Cream of Wheat for supper!

Kids don't get butter or sugar on it.

I like it. I have a box in the kitchen and I eat it from time to time. My grandmother used to make it for me when I was a kid so that’s what I’m used to. I don’t think I’ve ever even had grits or oatmeal.

Oh, and I only season mine with butter and salt.

Sacrilege! Grits are not supposed to be eaten with sugar! Salt, pepper, butter, made with water, not milk. Cheese, shrimp, ham, bacon -savory, not sweet! YE GODS!

Haha! I did, and so did my kids growing up so I guess we were spoiled absolutely rotten!

Now eggs - no ketchup, but here in Texas picante sauce is just fine. Wrap it up in a tortilla with some sausage or bacon and a side of grits and that's one fine breakfast there.

As a northerner, I am convinced they are the same thing. (I know, I know, grits come from corn).

I can't stand either one. I was forced to eat C of W as a kid, there wasn't enough brown sugar in the world to make it palatable.

I have eaten grits, formed into a loaf and sliced and fried in butter, with jam. Not too bad.

That's harsh - maybe that's why you didn't like it? Some moms make efforts for food to be palatable for their kids - butter and sugar are delicious.

It is ok to break the cycle though - I hope if you have kids they aren't / weren't forced to eat dreck.

They weren't. A couple of them will eat dirt if it has gravy, the other two are pickier.
