What exactly are grits?
Many people all over the Country eat Grits. What exactly are grits and why are they called by that name? Please write a hub about Grits and explain in detail.
Grits is ground corn, white or yellow, that is used as a hot breakfast cereal. It is not as fine as corn meal, but gritty like sand. It is often eaten with bacon, eggs and toast. It is boiled in water like rice until desired doneness and has the consistency of pancake batter. Salt to taste, and add butter if desired. Grits may also be served with melted cheese.
Great question. I live in Louisiana. It is a popular southern breakfast food that is white, and grainy , and soft when cooked. It does not have much flavor unless you add butter to it when it is hot. It goes well with fried eggs, and bacon. Now days they have it in different flavors I think. My wife, and daughter eat it sometimes. I don't know if it has much nutrition. It may have a lot of calories, and I think it is a major starch kind of food. It is grainy when cooked. Joann mixes a few spoons of it with a little water, and sticks it in the microwave a minute or two I believe. It is good with bacon bits. I bet the cowboys in wagon trains, or ranch hands might have ate it as part of their grub.
O.K. with coffee , eggs, bacon, with cow punchers that play harmonicas out on the range where the deer, and the antelope play like the song "Home on the Range," goes.
Sometimes I buy instant grits at the Dollar store. We like instant oatmeal too. The plain white grits are fast enough to cook. Why in the world did they need instant grits.
God Bless You Dear Heart. Good Question.

I believe it is ground hominy corn. We used to eat canned hominy when I was a kid and I hated it. When I was grown I visited the southern states and had it as grits. I loved it! I had to ask the waitress how to eat it because I had never had it. She was so sweet and told me how good they were for us.
"grits" is a southern breakfast food that feels gritty but are really quite good. There are two types, corn and hominy. They are made from small broken pieces of corn. The Native Indians were the first to make use of corn this way.
We love our grits here in the south! In coastal areas, like Charleston SC "Shrimp and Grits" is a specialty. The best grits I have ever eaten were made with heavy whipping cream in place of some of the water. Yummy! By the way, grits aren't just a breakfast food anymore!!
Hey honey chile, you can start them in cold water if you want instead of the boiling water thing. Grits are ground corn. I use regular grits, measure and put 'em in the water, add a little cottage cheese for extra taste and creaminess, add some sharp cheddar if you like it, salt and pepper, let 'em simmer and yummy yummy rub my tummy!
The Seminoles (and maybe other N.A. too I don't know about them) made a super thin gruel which cooked all day over a fire and the kids would run up and dip some out for extra energy throughout the day. Like a lot of things in my life now, oldies but goodies!
Grits are southern ice cream. The best are stone ground.
