Buttery Grits

Buttery Grits are a southern tradition. You can get any better with a slice of country ham!

I am a southern girl who loves grits! My grits are always buttery and have sugar on them 🙂 That’s why I call them Buttery Grits!

My recipe is adapted from the Queen of Southern Cooking — Mrs Paula Deen. As you know I love her cooking 🙂 When I make grits I also like to make Broiled Grapefruit and Easy Eggs.
