Grits are one of my favorite dishes to make. They are also one of the reasons why I started this blog. Growing up with a Southern mother, I was very used to have grits on a regular basis. I might wake up on Saturday morning to find a big pot of grits on the stovetop ready for me to serve them up with a mound of melting butter or I might find them baked with cheese served as a side dish at dinner. As much as I love them, they weren’t something that most people that I meet are familiar with. I introduced grits to my now husband, to all of my California friends, and my coworkers. I have found that once you try them, you’ll want them all the time! Because I have such fond memories of waking up to them on a lazy Saturday morning, I want to share this yummy breakfast cream cheese grits recipe. You can also try my delicious Cheese Grits with Gruyere recipe for a great dinner dish!Cream Cheese Grits | www.sweetteasweetie.com
