Bettyskitchen's picture
  Water 6 Cup (96 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Quick cooking grits 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs) (If Using Regular Grits, Follow The Instructions On The Package For Amount Of Grits, Salt, And Cooking Time, Corresponding To 6 Cups Water.)
  Shredded sharp cheddar cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Shredded monterey jack cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Butter 2 Tablespoon
  Black pepper 1⁄2 Teaspoon (If Desired Black Pepper)

In a large pot, bring 6 cups of water to a boil over medium heat. Add ½ teaspoon salt. Gradually add 1 ½ cups quick-cooking grits, stirring constantly. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring constantly, until water is absorbed and grits are thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese, 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese, and 2 tablespoons butter. Stir until all ingredients are combined. Pour into a nice serving bowl and serve immediately. This is an accompaniment I chose to put on my Mother's Day table. It is very Southern, and I hope you enjoy it! --Betty
