Southern Style Grits
Apart from in the south, grits are an overlooked breakfast staple. Look for stone-ground grits for maximum fiber and flavor. The addition of a portion of milk to the cooking liquid results in a creamy texture and delicious flavor.
Cook time: 15min
⅓ cup stone-ground grits
1 cup water
⅓ cup milk
⅛ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon butter
Salt, to taste (optional)
Pepper, to taste (optional)
- Combine grits, water, milk, salt and half the butter in a small saucepan.
- Heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer over low heat for approximately 30 to 40 minutes, stirring consistently so the mixture does not stick.
- When the mixture is thick and the grits are softened, remove it from the heat.
- Add the remaining butter. Season with additional salt, if desired, and pepper to taste. Enjoy!
