    Last week I posted a topic on the difference between grits and polenta. I was just wondering though, what kinds of dishes grits would be an appropriate side dish for ?. Thanks.

    Eggs and bacon...True southern breakfast.
    They really don't eat grits for other meals in Louisiana.

    Thought you'd enjoy this one, Margeret. A chef-instructor at J&W-Charleston once asked the class what the difference between grits and polenta was. The answer? $5 difference on the menu price!

    Shrimp and Grits is a wonderful Carolina tradition: grits, sharp cheddar hotsauce and butter combo. Rendered bacon, scallion and shrimp cooked in the bacon fat over top...not for the cholesterol-leary!

    Fried grits aka grilled polenta...

    Grits Souffle often served with pork dishes

    Grits and Grillades..
