PARMESAN AND CHEDDAR CHEESE GRITS
Everyone asks me for recipes, so I thought I throw one of my staples at you. This one is from my book Dining In and goes with almost anything. Enjoy!
4 c. water
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup uncooked fine or medium hominy grits
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 tbsp. unsalted butter
Ground black pepper
1. In a small saucepan bring the water and salt to a boil. Whiskk in the grits and continue to whisk for about 1 minute. When the mixture returns to boiling, reduce heat to lw. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until creamy and smooth, stirring frequently.
2. Remove from heat, stir in cheeses, butter and pepper to taste.
