Why I Love This Recipe

Being from Western Kentucky, I love grits, plain with sugar, butter, and milk are my favorite, but I also love these cheesy grits are so good.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 cups water
1 cup quick cooking grits
1 1/2 tsp salt
3 oz cream cheese
2 tbs butter
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese


Bring water and salt to boil on medium high heat.
Add grits slowly, stirring constantly to prevent lumps.
Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 20 to 25 minutes or until desired tenderness and consistency.
Cut cream cheese into chunks and add into grits with cheese and butter. Stir until well blended.
