Next I made a savory grits casserole, I cooked one cup of grits in 4 1/2 cups water, 1/2 cup of light cream and a tablespoon of butter. Make sure to add plenty of salt and pepper or they will be bland, then I added:
1 cup diced roasted poblano peppers
1 seeded tomato diced
2 green onions sliced
3 strips of cooked bacon diced
2 cups grated muenster cheese
mix all except the cheese (let it cool down a bit before you add the cheese) place in a casserole and bake at 350 about 40-45 min. You can add more shredded cheese to the top right at the end if you like.
I also made a Carolina vinegar based BBQ sauce:
1 cup white vinegar
1 cup of red wine vinegar (I didn't have any cider vinegar on hand)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1-2 tablespoons hot pepper flakes
1-2 tablespoons hot sauce (I used Trapey's Red Devil)
salt and pepper
Just bring to a quick boil.
* You can use any kind of cheese in the grits it you want a sharper taste.
** Make sure to taste as you go for example I added more brown sugar to the BBQ sauce because of my vinegar substitution.
*** And I really mean it the grits need lots of salt...taste, taste, taste!!
