Famous Recipes – Great Grits

Famous Recipes – Great Grits

a.. 3 cups milk
a.. 1 cups water
a.. 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter, divided (do not substitute margarine)
a.. 1 cup regular grits (do not use quick or instant)
a.. 1 teaspoon salt
a.. 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
a.. 4 ounces baby Swiss cheese, chopped in pieces
a.. 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese (see note)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 10-inch or 9 x 13-inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Bring milk, water and 1/2 cup of the butter just to a boil. Whisk in the grits and reduce the heat to low. Cook uncovered until thick, whisking frequently, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
Add the salt and pepper. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of butter and the Swiss cheese and stir until melted. Pour the grits in the baking dish and sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, until golden brown on top. Cooking time will vary slightly, depending on the size of the baking dish.

a.. Yields about 8 servings.

Note: For best results, use freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese from Italy, rather than pre-grated canned Parmesan cheese.
