Call It Whatever You Want, Just Eat It: Three Cheese Grits Soufflé

There’s something about a stick-to-your-ribs breakfast that just makes the morning better. Granted, you can’t do it every morning, but a weekend indulgence is just the time to reacquaint myself with my rural roots.

When I was a kid, the best thing in the world was to spend the night at my grandparents’ house. It was totally full of unique experiences: hunting forgotten treasure in the woods; a ride in the wagon pulled behind the tractor; sleeping on the hide-a-bed (OK, I was 6.

Recipe: Three Cheese Grits Soufflé


  1. People in this area just don't appreciate wife does tolerate them some, but only for my sake...but the only place to get them around here is cracker barrel...its so sad....
    I honestly never thought of them being so close to polenta...that is definitely food for thought!

  2. Yum! This sounds wonderful! What a fun way to serve grits or polenta or whatever. I bet the texture is great from the double cook. I'll hav eto give it a try!

  3. I've had that argument (that grits are just white polenta) with my dad before...the majority of my family is from far enough North that they hate grits (my mom is the exception, being from North Carolina, but I'm pretty sure she doesn't like them either). I personally, don't have a problem with them, and think your soufflé looks delicious!

  4. Is it wrong that I will regularly serve grits to my friends and tell them that it's polenta?

    It just goes to show you - it's all in the presentation... :)
