I thought I would get everyone's opinion before I bought them. I miss being in TN and wanted to eat something southern!
Sorry, I'm not a "grits man" myself. Personally, I think they just serve them to tourists because it's expected.

Okay, gang. Queen wants to make something southern. What should it be?

My vote is for a pecan pie. Or a blackberry cobbler. Or fried chicken. Or . . .

Okay, I'm getting hungry. Back later.

I had grits for the first time in Atlanta Georgia, actually Doraville. I've been eating them up here for quite a few years now and I actually like them. I take a couple of fried eggs (over medium) and mash them into the grits with some butter and pepper and it's breakfast. It's awesome!!! I wasn't a tourist at the time just traveling for the company.

I prefer grits for dinner as a side dish instead of potatoes but I bake them with butter, garlic and sharp cheddar cheese. When they are done, you can cut it like cake and you eat it with a fork....my grits are never runny! LOL!
