Gouda Grits



A traditional Southern favorite gets an update with the addition of this creamy cheese.



  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups whole milk 
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper 
  • 2 cups uncooked quick-cooking grits 
  • 1-2/3 cups shredded Gouda cheese 
  • 3 tablespoons butter 


  1. Combine the broth, milk, salt, and pepper in a saucepan. Bring them to a rolling boil over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  2. Very slowly and gradually whisk in grits. Stir for about 30 seconds, then cover, reduce the heat, and simmer for 5 minutes, or until the grits have reached your desired thickness.
  3. Add the cheese and butter, and stir until it has all melted.

Serve hot with bacon and toast for a delicious, filling breakfast.
