Cheesy & Creamy Grits

These are the best grits EVER! My recipe! I hate gritty grits so I made this to my taste! You can play around with the seasonings and cheeses to kick it up a notch as Emeril would say lol! This feeds a Family of four comfortably! When I was making it I was making it for just me so the pictures will show a smaller about of everything!

Cheesy & Creamy Grits


- 1 Cup Quick cooking grits
- 4 Cups Water
- 1 Cups Skim milk (you can use whole or 2%)
- 4 Tbsp of Butter (I used I cant believe its not butter)
- 3/4 cup Monetary Jack Cheese
- 3 Pieces of American Cheese
- Salt & Pepper to taste... You can also add in a little garlic powder and onion powder. Want a little spice at some red pepper.

*With the cheeses add what you like. This is a great combination tho. Also you can at more or less the amount I have like I said this is to my taste :)*


1. Bring Water, Milk, Salt, & Butter to a boil.

2. Slowly stir in grits. Stir for 3 mins on high.

3. Turn heat to low and simmer for 20 mins covered. I have gone up to 30 mins the longer the creamier. Make sure you stir every 10 mins or so. They may need a little more water or milk as they cook, I prefer mine thicker so I did not!
4. Add cheese. Stir til melted. Serve topped with black pepper on top. Along side some Scrambled Eggs or mix them in YUM!
