Always wondered about this...so just looked it up!

Grits = Porridge (essentially), right? Fantastic with Maple Syrup....

Mash Potato? Fantastic with mustard and grated cheese through it....

But I never understand why seem to have, forgive me if I'm wrong, a plate of grits with their vegges/meat?

From a Brit...that is just.....wrong!

[@329653,RubySoo] Now...cornbread and beans is nice...I've had that....but, yes, potatoes and porridge really shouldn't be in the same post code....just sayin'

Hmmmmm.....250 odd years of independence and you guys [i]think this[/i] is appropriate?!? LMAO!!!!!!

[@1146285,SammyJo] Breakfast grits are generally served with bacon or sausage, and grits are usually prepared with butter, sometimes cheese (maple syrup ? That’s a “no” here ! 🤢)
A popular brunch dish is shrimp and grits.

[@328496,bijouxbroussard] Y'see....wrong, wrong, wrong! First off...I'm a veggie, and Bacon? Yuck! Lol! Our porridge is made from oats and please do try them with Maple Syrup...that's a taste sensation right there!

I am discovering that while potatoes are carbs, they are still lower on the glycemic index than wheat, or corn or corn products like grits.

I loved mashed potatoes as a child. Even though they were the 'instant" kind, they were always the best part of our dinners, because my mother could not cook.

If I were given a LARGE bowl of mashed potatoes, I would probably have several bites, then cover it up and eat the rest when I was hungry.

I love grits. But I prefer hash browns to mashed potatoes.

Mashed potatoes
Grits with cheese and an over easy egg, a side of ham would be nice too. 🤤

Grits at breakfast time. Mash potatoes at lunch or supper.

Grits for breakfast. Mashed potatoes for dinner.
