How to Make Bacon Cheese Grits

Step-by-Step

  1. Place the milk and chicken stock in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Bring to a boil.
  3. Add the grits, whisking in until smooth.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium, and cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon until the grits have thickened, about 6 to 8 minutes.
  5. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally until the grits are soft and creamy, about 25 minutes.
  6. Stir in the cream and cook about 5 minutes longer.
  7. Remove from the heat and add the reserved bacon drippings, cooked bacon, 1 cup of the cheese and two-thirds of the green onions; season to taste with salt and pepper.
  8. Preheat the broiler.
  9. Spread the grits in a casserole dish.
  10. Scatter the remaining cheese over the top.
  11. Place under the broiler just until the cheese is bubbly and lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  12. Garnish with the remaining green onions and serve immediately.
