It's just a porridge made of ground corn.
Porridge has been a staple food for humanity since ancient times, because most grains aren't edible directly. You generally have to grind and boil grains to make them even begin to be palatable, and that's porridge. More sophisticated methods of processing grains result in things like bread and pasta. In the case of grits, it was a staple food for Native Americans, since corn was their ubiquitous grain.
You just did the equivalent of putting sugar on rice or a baked potato. It's doable, but both would need a lot more work to be palatable, such as mixing things up with cinnamon and other flavors that go with sweetness.
The point of putting on extra is to add to the (nonexistent) flavor, the same way you don't just buy crackers and eat them straight: you PUT STUFF ON THEM. Or you buy crackers that have some flavor added. Just crackers is like eating cardboard.
@Patches - three words; garlic cheese grits
You won't be disappointed.
Of course, garlic cheese rice or garlic cheese brocolli or garlic cheese potatoes or garlic cheese <anything that is starchy and doesn't have much of its own flavor> is pretty awesome. In general, adding fatty things (bacon, butter) or savory things (salt, bacon, garlic, pepper, spices) make it a yummy dish. If you'd do it with potatoes (smashed or baked) you can do it with grits.An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.
A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.

Damn it you guys, I want grits. Where does one get grits in Canada?

ETA: If you've got a bad craving, tho, you can substitute polenta. I feel like the Gods of Southern Cooking will come down on me for saying that, but grits are primarily a comfort food for me. If I'm making something nicer that calls for them, I'll typically sub polenta because its hominy but the texture is a lot smoother.
Also, grits with eggs and bacon mixed in is amazing. :3

I really like polenta and eggs and bacon and a bit of cheese. It's soooo good. Savory breakfasts > sweet breakfasts.
