Gluten Free Cheese Grits

Gluten Free Cheese Grits

Hands down my favorite Southern food is Cheese Grits.  When I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease I freaked out a bit because I wondered about my favorite Southern Soul Food.  I was so relieved when I realized grits are naturally gluten free.  We literally have this delicious side dish on a monthly basis.  It goes great with Steak, Ham, or Shrimp!  I like to serve it with this Gluten Free Homemade Bread Recipe.

    I’ve been afraid to buy grits, not knowing if they are contaminated in the field with gluten the way oats are. Are they gluten free?
