Sweet Grits

Nope, not sweet by addition of white poison a.k.a. suga, but sweet by tomatillos. If you have never had them you are in for a treat. They are similar to tomatoes, but sweet n sour like a granny smith apple. Here is a recipe that adds them to one of my favorite breakfast carbs, grits!

1 lb tomatillos, husks removed

2 tbsp butter

1/4 yellow onion, chopped

1 serrano chile should you desire a little spice in the am

4 cloves garlic, minced (not pictured)

1/2 cup cilantro

1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

juice of half a lime

1 cup grits

2 cups milk (not pictured)

2 cups water

1 cup shredded cheese (not pictured)

salt n pepa

Wow I sucked at bringing all the ingredients to the photo op huh! Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook tomatillos for about 5 min to soften them up.

Bring another pot to a boil with the 2 cups of water and milk. Add the grits once boiling. Cook according to package directions.

Saute the onions andd garlic in a small pan. Look at this enemble.

Drain the tomatillos and let them cool for a few. Add the onions, garlic to a blender.

Add the tomatillos, seasoning, cilantro, serrano if using and lime juice.

Blend and pour the green goodness into the cooked grits.

Stir together. Serve warm with a sprinkling of cheese.

Honestly, I recieved a 50/50 response on this. I realize this recipe is not for everyone. I love grits and this was so yummy to me.

From Homesick Texan by Terry Fain. I gotta return this book to the library so there will a shortage of these for a bit.
