Being a southern girl I love them BUT, I have grit rules... they must be smooth but not runny. Not so thick you can scoop them like ice cream. Cheese is acceptable. Here's where it gets nutty. I want them served with over medium eggs and breakfast meat only. If someone serves them with scrambled I will still eat them but runny egg yolks and grits is perfection. Southern ice cream as my dad used to call it. How do you love/ hate your grits?
