Parmesan Grits 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 20 minutes



  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup stone-ground grits
  • 1/4 cup finely grated Parmesan
  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp heavy whipping cream


In a saucepan over medium heat, boil 4 cups of water with the salt. Once boiling, whisk in grits and cook, whisking constantly for 1 minute. Return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until grits are tender, about 20 minutes.

Whisk in parmesan and butter. Remove from heat and stir in heavy cream. Top with a pat of butter if desired.


Add a bit of fresh cracked pepper to bring out the nuttiness.

This dish is best served immediately.
