Despite their prevalance in many all-American dishes (like grits with bacon and eggs), grits are actually of Native American origin. Hailing from the Southwest region, grits are made from coarsely ground corn and resemble a white porridge.
They're great for pairing with savory foods like breakfast sausages or the shrimp in this recipe. To learn how to prepare Shem Creek shrimp and grits, check out this food video.
