Ingredients

  • 1 cup grits (not instant)
  • Kosher salt 
  • 1 cup whole milk 
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter 
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar 
  • Freshly ground black pepper 
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions 

Directions

Bring 5 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the grits and a pinch of salt and cook, stirring, until just starting to thicken, about 5 minutes.

Add the milk and bring to boil, then adjust the heat to maintain a low simmer. Partially cover and cook, stirring every few minutes, until thick and creamy, 10 to 20 minutes.

Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and cheese (reserve a pinch for garnish) until melted. Season with salt and pepper.

Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with the scallions and the reserved cheese.
