HOT BUTTERED GRITS

Grits are a well-known staple in the South. Up North--not so much. But if you haven't tried them, you're really missing something special. Try them this way, slathered in melted butter--my favorite--or any number of other variations.

Stove Top

Ingredients

3 c
water
1/2 tsp
salt
3/4 c
quick cooking grits
1 Tbsp
butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium saucepan, over high heat, bring water to a boil. Stir in grits and salt and bring to second boil, stirring constantly to prevent lumps.
2
Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 5-7 minutes, until thick and creamy. Remove from heat. Stir in butter and serve.
3
If 1 Tbsp. butter seems too much for you, reduce the amount. I happen to like lots of butter. Another way to serve grits is with maple syrup, or with sugar added.
