Creamy Cheese Grits
How do you unlock the most corn flavor from creamy cheese grits?
Why This Recipe Works
Grits are a southern staple made with little more than water, salt, and sometimes butter. For our purposes, we began by building flavor with sautéed scallion whites. After slow-cooking our grits for 15 minutes in a combination of water and milk for richness, we stirred in the cheese: a mixture of Monterey Jack for creaminess and sharp cheddar for tang. Finally, to boost the corn flavor of our grits, we finished them with pureed corn.
