Description

These grits are perfect for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner! Cheesy and delicious.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Divided
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Finely Minced
  • 3 cups Water
  • 1 teaspoon Fine Sea Salt
  • 1 cup Quick-cooking Grits, Polenta Or Corn Meal
  • ½ cups Whole Milk
  • ½ cups Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Monterey Jack Cheese, Grated
  • ½ cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • 4 strips Bacon, Fully Cooked And Chopped
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 1 dash Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Fresh Parsley Chopped For Garnish

Preparation

In a large saucepan, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute or until the garlic aroma fills the air. Lower the heat to a simmer and slowly add in the water. Salt the water and turn the heat up to high. Bring to a boil, then again lower the heat to medium-low and slowly whisk in the grits until they are smooth. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once the cornmeal has soaked up the water, stir in the whole milk, heavy cream and remaining 3 tablespoons butter. Cook for another 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove the grits from heat and stir in the cheeses, bacon and a dash of salt and pepper.

Garnish with parsley and a sprinkle of cheese. Serve immediately.
