@Hotfoot4047: Grits are very similar to polenta.
Delicious! I've made this dish several times. The only change I make is to add an extra clove of garlic.
PS - this recipe sounds good! I have already printed it off!
For Hotfoot - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grits
Do you have something like cream of wheat? Somewhat similar, but a larger texture to the pieces. I had my first grits when I moved to TX back in 1976. I grew to love them!
Can somebody please tell me what grits are and what the equivalent would be in England? I regularly see this ingredient in American recipes but I have no idea what it is.
