Spicy and oh so Cheesy Grits ya'll





Why is it when I say Grits I want to say it with a southern accent?


"Ma'am’ can I have some grrrrit’s please?" *insert southern accent*


Another random thing, whenever my husband has to call into one of the horrendous call centers, you know the ones where you have 85.6 options to try and make it to the proper person…maybe. Well when he gets connected to a southern lady..his long forgotten southern twang returns. That man could talk any company into giving us free service for a year with his accent and southern charm….that he promptly turns off once the phone call ends


Switching back to his Southern California charm….picking up some fish taco’s and making plans to go surfing…or at least picking up some avocado’s for me at the store. Party on dude.


Speaking of Southern California, I am a San Diego girl…I know a few of you might have wondered why at this time of year I still have flowers thriving out my window. You are perfectly welcome to visit, I accept payments of cheese, wine, and chocolate.








INGREDIENTS (Serves 8)

1 c. uncooked grits
2 c. water
2 c. chicken broth
1 can of Rotel, drained
1 c. milk
4 eggs, beaten
2 c. cheddar cheese, grated










DIRECTIONS


Bring to boil the water & stock; stir in grits and follow package directions. Turn off heat. Add milk, Rotel, and 1 cup of the shredded cheddar cheese, mixing well. Let cool so that eggs will not cook when added.









Add eggs and pour in a buttered casserole dish, sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.


"Make this casserole ya’ll!" *insert southern accent here please*

I'm not the biggest fan of grits but I do like the cheesy crust you've got going here!

egbkid said...

Are grits and cornmeal the same thing? My beau lived in the South for a bit when he was a kid, he loves grits, but it is not something you can get here. Can grits be made with corn meal?

Anna said...

I don't think I've ever even tried grits, but that cheddar shower you have on there would convince me to give them a try. As for your sunny and flowery abode....I believe it's -15F here now, so count me as officially jealous.

Marina said...

Oooh that looks delish! And hey, I have those same bushes with pink flowers out my kitchen window. It's no wonder, we're only 3 hours north of you!
I put your blog on my small list of favorite sites! I feel super lame asking, but would you be willing to put Yummy Mummy on your blogroll?

Kathleen said...

Val said...

You may have changed my view on grits!!! I have never seen them look better!!! Mmm mmm good.

Miss Meat and Potatoes said...

You are speaking my language here! This looks to die for!! I could eat that whole thing AND some wine and chocolate;)

I cannot stop laughing. I've been practising my southern accent (a la Paula Deen) and with my mix of British accent, it's not working at all.
I don't think I had grits before, would love to try it though. Looks delicious.

Junko said...

Yum! Now I have a huge craving for cheesy grits, bacon and fried eggs!

Bridgett said...

There is something completely charming about a Southern accent....or a British one at that. Works for me every time. These grits look heavenly. I can't even remember the last time I have had grits and I need to fix that!

Eliana said...

Susan from Food Blogga said...

We lived in NC before moving to San Diego, and I love saying griiiitz and sweet potata pie with a Southern accent. It's so much more fun. Ain't it, Sugah?

Fashion Meets Food said...

Oh my word! How good does this look. I just might have to make it.

Jenn said...

Funny, the word grits brings out my southern drawl too!! :) And I can't help but think of the old tv show Alice... "Kiss my Grits"!! LOL God, did I just age myself or what? Oh, I just saw that Design and Wine said the same thing.. oh well, it's still funny! LOL
The grits look fantastic, Jen. And Cheesy... YUM!

Georgia (The Comfort of Cooking) said...

Yee haw! These grits look dang good, little lady! Thinkin' about fixin' me up some of these myself! .... Was that good? I grew up on a farm, so I like to think I have it down-pat.

Cathy said...

I never had grits growing up and I'm just now learning how versatile and delicious they are. Love the addition of a can of Rotel.

Monet said...

I am not a grits girl...but I have to admit that this looks pretty delicious. I think your grits might be the only kind I would try! Thank you for sharing another great recipe with me. You never let me down! I hope you have a weekend of love and relaxation. We all need it, I think!

Sue said...

I have NEVER eaten grits, but perhaps this is a good place to start:)

May I say that I just love me some grits. When I lived in SC I think I had them every morning for breakfast. Usually with an egg stirred in. Oh man. I need some right now!
