From EatingWell:  September/October 1996

Cheesy grits are a wonderful accompaniment to roast meats and vegetables; or try them with poached eggs for breakfast.

2 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Combine milk, water and salt in a saucepan over medium heat; heat until almost boiling. Reduce the heat to low, whisk in grits and cook, whisking constantly, until they start to thicken, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and whisk in 2 tablespoons cheese. Cover and let stand until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the grits are creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Divide between 2 bowls, sprinkle with the remaining 2 tablespoons of cheese and serve.
