How to Make Cheesy Grits

Cheesy Grits are a delicious addition to a meal. They can be served with breakfast, lunch, or dinner and take just 30 minutes to prepare.

Grits are ground corn kernels. You may see grits labeled as “stone-ground grits”. You may also see hominy grits which are made from hominy. 


– Water – Half and Half – Salt – Grits

Combine the water, half and half, and salt in a large pot. Bring to a steady simmer and then add the grits. Whisk to combine.


Let the grits slowly simmer over low heat for about 25 minutes, until they are very thick. Whisk periodically, this is the trick to getting smooth creamy grits.


Once the grits have cooked for 25 minutes, add 2 tablespoons butter, the cream, and 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese. Stir to combine.
