Ingredients

  • 5 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups uncooked quick-cooking grits*
  • 1/2 (8-ounce) block sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 (8-ounce) block Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Preparation

  1. Bring 5 cups water and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Gradually whisk in grits; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes or until thickened. Stir in Cheddar cheese and remaining ingredients until cheese is melted and mixture is blended. Serve immediately.
  2. *Stone-ground grits may be substituted. Increase liquid to 6 cups, and increase cook time to 50 minutes.
