Cooking grits with milk and cottage cheese gives them an extra calcium boost. Use this recipe when making our Poached Eggs Over Grits.
Bring milk to a boil over medium heat. Add grits, reduce heat to low, stir, and cover. Cook old-fashioned grits 15 to 20 minutes or quick-cooking grits about 5 minutes, until thick.
Stir in cottage cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
You will find quick-cooking grits and old-fashioned stone-ground grits in most grocery stores, but stone-ground grits generally have more flavor.
