“The only request my new husband had for our first holiday meal together was cheese grits. Having never had them before I called his mother for her recipe and have been hooked ever since! UPDATE: I wanted to cut the fat content so tried this recipe with light Velveeta and cut the butter to 1/3 cup. We couldn't tell the difference and cut the fat content by about a third!”
