Smoked Gouda Grits

Yield Makes 6 to 8 servings
Swap smoked Gouda cheese for traditional Cheddar in these dressed-up cheese grits.  The smoked Gouda cheese gives the grits deep, rich, satisfying flavor.


  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth or water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 2 cups uncooked quick-cooking grits
  • 1 2/3 cups shredded smoked Gouda cheese
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

How to Make It

  1. Bring first 4 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually whisk in grits. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until thickened. Add cheese and butter, stirring until melted.

Cook's Notes

Buy a 7-ounce wheel of smoked Gouda cheese to get the right amount.
