Grits with Hunter Sauce

From Minnie:  People in some areas may serve polenta…but we are in the south, so we serve grits!  Grits topped with gravy or alongside an egg…grits with fish or alongside a slab of ham.  Anyway, anytime…we love grits!  And this recipe is no exception.  It is delicious as a side for whatever protein you happen to be serving.  It is easy as can be…very filling…and just simply delicious!
