@pixiedust - There are 6 servings to this recipe. Cut into 6 and that's it! I would also be tempted to eat more than 1/6 so it's important that wouldn't be the whole meal. fruit first? Large glass of water first?

I'll have to give this a try. Might be a nice change from my usual way of preparing cheese grits.

This recipe was posted so very long ago. I wonder how much is a serving? I would be tempted to eat too much
