I just bought Quick Grits to just try and I dont really like them plain. What are some good ways to prepare them to make them delicious?

Cheese. And when you eat them, try repeating phrases like "Yeah, buddy!" and "Light Weight!"

Lol, that the reason why I wanted to try them because Ronnie eats them with Breakfast every morning.

Yeah, after I saw "Relentless" I replaced my oatmeal with grits for a couple of weeks just for ****s and giggles.

DT,
Try 2 packs with 2 cups of water, nuke for 4 minutes. Now thats the kind that comes in the box of like 10 packages. If your using the caned stuff the formula is 1 part grits to 2 parts water. Remeber that grits (like pasta) will soak flavor up when cooking, so try A pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon of butter added to the bowl b4 nuking. when done they should be just like orzo or cous-cous. Ronnie uses A artificial butter, mrs. dash I believe. I'm so dang tickled to see A yankee tryin grits I tell you what! My son lives in tonawanda (upstate) and I hate for him to miss out on his southern heratage.

You could ask my bro ronnie himself if you'd like, he's A damn nice guy really down to earth. bigron_coleman@yahoo.com. He got me to stop drinking and turned my life around!

God Bless

now that, ladies and gentleman, is a reply. I'm going get some grits next time I'm at the store.

Make them with milk, melt a stupid amount of sharp cheddar in, sprinkle on some black pepper.

Plain grits are meh, but just a little bit of something and they're freaking delicious. I made some polenta out of yellow corn grits (MUCH better and cheaper than quick grits imo), and ate them as a side with some lamb and gravy for lunch today. They're one of those really bland foods you can do anything with.
