Easy Grits Recipe – 3 Meal Ideas

I have been on a grits kick lately and its been one of the simplest and nourishing things to prepare. Grits are made from ground corn, either yellow or white and they come in different varieties depending on the texture and how they are processed. For this recipe, I am using old-fashioned yellow grits which has a medium coarse grind and takes 15-20 minutes to cook.

Stone-ground grits are the least processed form of grits and have the most fiber and B vitamins. They have a heartier texture with strong corn flavor. However, they take longer to cook (40-45 minutes).

You will need your choice of grits, water, and salt to make a good pot of grits. Grits have a mild corn-like flavor but it easily takes on other flavors. I’d recommend finishing grits with a small dollop of butter, or a drizzle of olive oil for a creamy texture and lovely flavor.

  • To add extra creaminess, whisk in heavy whipping cream at the end. Shredded cheese such as cheddar is a great option too.
  • You can boost up the flavor of grits by replacing some of the water with broth/stock.
  • I personally like grits in savory application but you can enjoy grits as breakfast porridge/oatmeal with honey, nuts, fruits.

  • General ratio to cook grits is 1:4. For every cup of grits, use 4 cups of liquid. You can use all water, or a combination of stock, water, and milk. If using instant grits,read the instructions on the packet and follow accordingly.
