Now if you are a Southerner than you know that grits are a stable in our culture. It’s a dish that can be eaten for breakfast or dinner. You can pair it with so many different and delicious toppings. If you are a beginner and want to wow your guests with this dish, then scroll down below where I show you how to take your grits to the next level in a simple recipe.

You can purchase any type of grits, but I personally loved this brand because of the hominy in them. You can find this brand and your local H-E-B in the South. If not, then you can substitute them for any brand that are white hominy grits.

Ingredients (Serving Size:2)

  • White Hominy Grits (3/4 cup)
  • Butter (2 Tablespoons)
  • Water (3 cups)
  • Salt (1 teaspoon)
  • Cream Cheese (2 Tablespoons)
  • Almond Milk (1/2 cup)
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. First, take out a small saucepan. Add 3 cups of water and 1 teaspoon of salt. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add 3/4 cups of grits to pan and let boil for 5 to 7 minutes. Stir occasionally to keep from sticking.
  3. Bring fire down to low. Add 2 tablespoons of butter, 1/2 cup of milk, and 2 tablespoons of cream cheese.
  4. Stir ingredients until combined well for 1 minute.
  5. Remove from heat and add a little salt and pepper to taste.

Want to take it up an extra notch? Here are some alternatives.

  • Add Cheese and mixed until melted. My favorite combination.
  • More Savory: replace the water with Chicken Broth
  • Add Grilled or Blackened Seafood- Fish or shrimp goes well with this seasoned with Old Bay. Go the savory approach and garnish with green onions.
  • Make it a Grit Bowl layered with grits on bottom, bacon or sausage on top, eggs, and cheese
  • Fried Seafood- I enjoy eating fried fish and shrimp with this and savory grits with cheese and biscuits on the side.
  • Fried Chicken is a great combo also with some biscuits and honey on the side.
