A new breakfast experience today-1/14/08 Mon, 01/14/08 9:55 AM (permalink)
I work the 3rd shift every Sunday night and some Mondays, I stop in the company cafeteria to get breakfast for my walk home. The past couple of weeks, I have been getting hot polenta and mixing in brown sugar, granola and golden raisins and it's on of the most delicious and filling breakfasts I've have ever had. It runs about $1.90 for a large NYC soup container size (think a large Au Bon Pain soup).
Anyway, they have never had signs for it there and its always been next to the oatmeal and the mix-ins were right there, so I just ASSUMED it was polenta. Turns out they were cheese grits, per the sign that was present for the first time ever today. I never detected any savory flavor or a cheese flavor to them before, but now I taste it and I gotta tell ya, it's weird, but I love the combination of the sweet mix-ins and the cheese grits! Never would have thought to do it before. Just wanted to share.

      very interesting mix.... maybe they don't put in enough cheese to make it seem like cheese grits..and grits and polenta are pretty much the same thing..so it probably works.

        Eh, why not. Cheese goes great with apples. Mixing sweat and salt has always been a draw for me.

          Little did I know that I was having polenta as a kid.

          Mom called it cornmeal mush.

                Well, there's chocolate Schwette balls.

                Now I'm going to have to try putting brown sugar in my cheese grits and see if it breaks my brain. It sounds so yummy the way he describes it.
