Cheese Grits

As much as non-Southerners complain about grits – I’ve never found anyone that didn’t like cheese grits. I grew up eating grits with a fried fish dinner in Florida which is irregular around here. They aren’t healthy by any means but they are a great treat every once and while. We sure did enjoy them on Sunday for Aida’s big farewell.


  • 1 cup water
  • 2 and 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grits
  • 6 ounces extra sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Assembly: Bring the water and milk to a boil. Add the grits and lower the heat. Stir occasionally. Once the grits have come together – add the cheese, butter, salt and pepper (to taste).
