Creamy Grits

3 c. Water

1 Tsp. Salt

1 c. Grits

1/2 Tsp. Pepper

3 Tbsp. Butter, Room Temperature

1/2 c. Grated or Crumbled Cheese ( Cheddar, mozzarella or 1/4 c. Blue Cheese ) Optional

1/4 c. Sugar ( optional) or Honey (optional)

1/3 c. Dried Fruit (optional)

1 Tsp. Creole or  Cajun Seasoning (optional)


(1.) In a large sauce pan ( with fitted lid) add the Water and bring to a boil. Add the Salt and stir to dissolve. Slowly whisk in the grits until it just starts to thicken. While whisking cook for 3 minutes. Turn heat off and place the lid on. Let set for 20 minutes. This steams the grits and makes them nice and soft.

(2.) After 20 minutes remove the lid and  vigorously whisk in the butter. This makes the grits creamy. Add in the pepper and more salt if needed. At this point you can add any of the above add ins for your favorite taste.


This is the easiest recipe for grits that I have. It is super easy and requires little work. They are creamy and soft and very basic so you can add in any type of Cheese, Seasonings or Dried Fruit you want.  Grits in the South are very Traditional. Every family has their own way of making them. The way that I make Grits eliminate the lumps and makes them creamy and delicious. Not to mention after you only stir for 3 minutes just to get them going you just place on a lid , set a timer for 20 minutes, Turn off the heat and walk away. when you whisk in the butter it makes it very creamy.
