Veggies and Grits

I've been on the hunt for some really good stone ground grits and I finally found them.  If you are interested, you can find them here:  The have yellow and white.  I stocked up on both.

Follow the directions on the bag but basically you just boil water with some salt and butter and add the grits.

I added some cheddar and blue cheese for this recipe.

Slice up your vegetables. 

Melt 2 T. of butter and add 2 T. of oil.

First I sauteed the onions until they softened and then I threw in the garlic.  I pushed that off to the side and threw in the mushrooms.  Sprinkle each addition with salt and pepper.

Once the mushrooms are almost finished, they are pushed to the side, and I add the zucchini.

The secret to this recipe is liquid smoke.  Add about 6 drops.  This is just enough to add depth of flavor without overwhelming the dish.

There were lots of Mmmmm's while my peeps were eating this.

I do love grits...
If I made this, I'd go around saying "Kiss my grits!" all day so it's just as well that I don't.

These both sound really good. I will have to try that with the liquid smoke.
The only thing I've ever used liquid smoke for is making jerky. :o)
Looks yummy - I can smell from here! My neighbour in Austin Texas used to make really good grits, now I have a good recipe to try, thank you :)
