Some of you might remember my "hope I don't offend you southerners" post of a week or so ago, about eating grits. Well I learned a lot in that thread, lol. So this morning I made my grits, and fried up two pieces of bacon and two eggs over easy. Broke up the bacon, put it and the eggs in with the grits, "mooshed" (I think that was the word) it all around, salted it... o.m.g... B) Delicious!

It's mornings like this where I don't miss my gluteny cereal. :lol:

Thanks to all of you who suggested it. ;)

OK all you "new southerners" - time to try grillades and grits, a very old Creole dish, is a favorite at fancy-dress balls and other social gatherings of the current Carnival season. Sort of braised round steak with real good seasonings severed with grits.

Grits for a quick lunch or dinner:

1 cup chicken broth to boiling

1/2 cup cream

1 tablespoon butter

Bring back to boil

Toss in quick cook grits.

Serve with anytype of meat: our favorite:

Cook bacon, then saute peppers, onions, mushrooms, toss in shrip.

Plate grits and top with your favorite meat or veggies:)

this morning i made "quick cooking grits" (kroger store brand) as a sub for farina/cream of wheat (comfort food for this jersey girl!) and ate them with sugar and milk - absolutely delish and no (didn't realize it till this morning when i was waiting for that familiar gut feeling) aftermath - another choice for breakfast!! also, i am thinking shrimp and cheez grits one of these nights for dinner :)

Had shrimp and cheese grits last night. They were good. I don't really have a recipe. My dad had made some at the holidays. He used wostershire sauce, minced garlic, either hot sauce or chili sauce, I think bacon grease is involved too. I searched for recipes with these ingredients and several came up. I just mixed up what I had at home and kept tasting it.

I went to Cracker barrel on March 31. When I asked what was gluten free the manager came to our table and handed me a gluten-free "menu". This menu also contains information about Soy, fish, shellfish, treenut, and peanut allergens. This is what it states for Gluten:

"Wheat (Gluetens) Allergen:

The following foods can be recommended for guests who are allergic to wheat.

eggs

BBQ Pulled Pork

Side Items: Apple Sauce, Carrots, Cole Slaw, Corn, Green Beans, Pinto Beans, Turnip Greens

Tossed Salad and House Salad or Country Chef Salad (without Croutons)

All Salad dressings are Wheat (Gluten) free

***All fried items should be avoided due to cross-contamination from the cooking oil***

***All grilled items should be avoided due to cross-contamination from the grill surface***

Biscuits and Dumplins are made from scratch all day in an open kitchen so the potential for cross-contatmination of wheat glutens is very high and we cannot guarantee a meal will be completely gluten free."

I had the pulled pork, applesauce and cole slaw and did just fine.

I don't suppose anyone has a recipe for home-made grits, we don't have them here, but all this talk is making my mouth water!

You'll have to find the coarse-ground corn somewhere. Then you just boil it with water and a pinch of salt like any porridge, stirring occasionally to keep lumps from forming. When it's cooked to your liking, you can melt in cheese, crumble in bacon, add butter or half and half, or serve with ham and some drippings or sausage.
