Creamy Grits

Serves 6-8 hearty portions


  • 5+ cups water
  • 1½ - 2 cups slow-cooking grits, yellow or white
  • 1 stick of butter (½ cup)
  • salt to taste


  1. Bring water to a boil
  2. Add butter
  3. Add grits and whisk the mixture steadily until it comes to a boil
  4. Cook for 1-2 hours, continually stirring to avoid sticking to bottom of pan
  5. If grits become too think, simply add more water. When grits are close to serving, stop adding water so they won't be too runny
