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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the butter and cheese (reserve a pinch for garnish) until melted. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with the scallions and the reserved cheese.
