  • ¾ pound Butter
  • 1 tbsp Salt (or to taste)

  • 1 ½ cups Sharp Cheddar Cheese, grated

Add cream, water, butter, salt and pepper to sauce pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and stir in the grits. Stir with wire whisk continuously to keep grits from clumping up. Once all the grits are blended, continue to stir for 2- 3 minutes. Reduce heat and cook for about 15- 20 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cheddar cheese.
