For whatever reason, it has become a major debate all over the internet about what is the best thing to put in grits. Like teams have formed, memes have formed, & it’s getting hectic out here – all over grits. Yes, you read that correctly, grits. So what you put in your grits?
S. Brown: I’m not really a big breakfast person, honestly I can go without – I know, I know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I get that, but I don’t prefer it. But whenever I do decide to eat a little breakfast, grits are one of very few breakfast foods that I eat. How I eat them you ask? Well, grits are extremely blend; therefore it’s almost an requirement to add some type of flavor to it or chances are it’s going to like you’re eating cardboard – okay, maybe not exactly cardboard but you get the idea. Me, personally I’ve eaten grits both ways, with salt & pepper & sugar. I even recall eating my grits with all three & never thought twice about it. All I knew was I wasn’t eating them dry.
K: I had to stop eating grits for a while because I ate them every morning for 2 years straight. It’s what my mama made me. I just started back eating them a couple years back. I have never eaten sugar in my grits. Ever. My mother refused to let us. As a matter of fact, we had a sleepover once & my mama didn’t even want to let the other kids put sugar in their grits. So I can’t truly speak on the debate. I just know how I like mine. I love them nice & silky, no gross grit lumps, plenty of butter, a nice amount of salt, not too much, & some cheese, preferably cheddar. So good! I’m not saying that’s the way to do it, I’m just saying that’s how I like mine. I prefer to make my own though. Restaurant grits can be iffy. Don’t let me get no eggs up in that thang. It’s a wrap!
I don’t know why we’re having this debate. Eat your grits how you want them. It is what is is. But the question is what team are you? Team Sugar Grits or Team Salt & Pepper Grits? Let us know!
