How to Make It
Bring 5 1/4 cups water and 1 tsp. salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat; gradually whisk in 1 1/4 cups grits, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, whisking occasionally, 12 to 15 minutes or until thickened. Whisk in shredded Gruyère cheese and remaining ingredients until cheese is melted and mixture is blended.
