I know all my friends down south will call BS on this assault upon a southern benchmark but I like stuff a little different. I like a large helping of grits with my fried eggs at breakfast so here goes. If you have grits leftover [no such animal] put them in the fridge and use them tomorrow for FRIED grits...yummy.
Boil 2 cups water
Add one chicken bullion cube and wait till it is dissolved into the water
Add 1/2 cup grits and boil according to instructions
When grits are done pour into bowl and add one heaping tablespoon of sour cream. Hot sauce to taste. Mix well.
This, to me, makes a great creamy grit
