Depending on what part of the country you're from, grits may or may not have been a staple at your breakfast table. If you were lucky, they were. If not, it's okay, you've got some time to make up for all the servings you've missed.
Not only are grits delicious, but they've also been used to free wrongly-accused men of murder. (Okay, that may have been a fictional scenario from "My Cousin Vinny," but it could happen.) Grits recipes are often just served next to eggs, but they get interesting when you know what to add to them. Check it out.
