Mealthy Tip

Add whatever toppings you like! Cheese is traditional, but try chopped chives, crumbled bacon, or a vinegary hot sauce like Tabasco. Some also like their grits sweet, similar to porridge—to try that, omit the cheese, and drizzle the cooked grits with maple or sorghum syrup.

Really delicious creamy grits! Half and half is a little lighter than heavy cream, but still adds a delicious texture. These are so good, I love the cheese! Definitely a cheat day breakfast, and very savory.

These creamy cheddar grits are really good. This recipe makes a large batch so I ate it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It goes great with sausage and eggs, or shrimp and as well.

Grits are not part of my childhood, so my only experience with them is from the one time that I ordered it from Cracker Barrel. I was not a fan. Fallowed the recipe completely. These are amazing! Yummy.
