Cheesy Grits

There is something sublime, sensational and comforting about southern style cheesy grits.  It is a dish that that can be savored morning, noon and night.  By itself, with a simple salad, topped with roasted root vegetables, blackened shrimp.... The list of options and opportunities goes on and on.

  • 1 package Polenta  mix
  • 6 cups water, whey  or  chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp  butter
  • 1 cup (about 8oz) Shredded Monteray Jack Cheese
  • 1 cup (about 8oz) Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 large tomato, diced (optional)
  • Pepper to taste

In a medium sauce pan, bring water to a boil.  Gradually stir in the mix.  Cover and cook on low heat.  Stir often until grits are tender, about 25 minutes.  Stir in butter and cheese.

Crock Pot Method
Add all ingredients to the crock pot. Cook on high for 3 hours.  Stir a couple times. Reduce heat to low and cook for another 5 hours.
