14 Totally Golden Grits Recipes
Fair warning: we’re getting corny over here with these 14 all-American grits recipes. Much like polenta, the array of applications for this filling porridge are seemingly endless. Cook up something classic, like savory shrimp and grits, or choose something more unconventional, like cookies and pies — either way, you cannot go wrong with this grain!

4. Grits Cakes With Country Ham and Bourbon Mayonnaise: Talk about an excellent app to make for your next holiday or derby party. (via The New York Times)
11. Buttered Grits Cookies: The hint of lemon in these cake-like cookies lends just a touch of brightness, making them a nice counterpoint to the rich butter frosting spread on top. (via Dessert for Two)
