White grits tend to have a fine consistency and hence a relatively short cooking time compared with some other varieties. They are not the same as instant grits.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water to a boil in a medium pot. Whisking constantly, slowly add grits to water and cook until mixture starts to thicken, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer gently, stirring occasionally, until grits are smooth, thick, and fall easily from the spoon, about 25 minutes.

  • Add cheese, salt, and cayenne, and stir just until cheese melts. Serve immediately, or cover and keep grits warm over low heat, stirring occasionally, for up to 1 hour (you may need to adjust the consistency with additional water just before serving).
