Description

Grits are your friend. Especially the cheesy variety. Love the slightly sweet bite of the corn running through these and the bump of nutrition from the kale.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 cup Half-and-Half, Fat Free Will Work
  • 1 cup Quick-cooking Grits
  • 3 stalks Kale, Core Removed And Chopped
  • 4 ounces, weight Extra-sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • 1 ear Corn, Kernels Removed Or 1/2 Cup Frozen
  • Salt And Pepper
  • Green Onions, Sliced, For Garnish

Preparation

Combine chicken broth and half-and-half. Bring to a boil in a medium size saucepan. Whisk in grits to combine, making sure there are no clumps; stir in kale. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5-7 minutes (or as recommended on package). Whisk in cheese until melted; stir in corn and heat through. Taste for seasoning, adding salt and pepper if desired.

Garnish with green onions.

I followed this recipe precisely, and it was awesome!! I later added some breakfast sausage (even though we had it for dinner), just because I needed to cook it and we didn’t have anything else with it. It definitely did not need the sausage. I’ll be making this again for sure!!
