It’s time for Tuesday Tips and Tidbits!
Have you ever tried course ground corn to make your grits, instead of the hominy variety? It is the same type of grind used to make polenta, but cooks in only 5 minutes. Several years ago, I decided to give it a try, and my family just loved it. I just had to reshare this tip, because I get so excited when I find food that is minimally processed with minimal ingredients. You can’t beat a product that contains only ground corn, and is as good if not better than the normal hominy grits you find in the store. Another great thing about this product, is that you can cook it in 5 minutes to make grits or around 20 minutes to make polenta. I love these grits with or without cheese and paired with a fried egg. We sometimes eat this for dinner and throw in green beans as another side. Give it a try if you like grits. They are creamy and delicious. I make the grits according to package directions, but I like to add extra virgin olive oil and sometimes cheese.
- 2 cups water
- 2/3 cup corn grits
- 1/2 tsp. salt (or to taste)
- 1 Tbsp olive oil (I use extra virgin)
- 2 oz. cheddar cheese (optional)
