Grits are a good meal stretcher if you have more people than you planned on at mealtime.

We served grits with ham and fish dinners also.

How to Make Grits


  • 1Heat the water to boiling in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  • 2Pour in the grits very gradually, stirring the whole time to prevent lumps.
  • 3Add the salt, reduce the heat to low (one or two bubbles should rise to the top at a time), and cook, stirring constantly, until tender, about 10 minutes.
  • 4Grits should be as thick as oatmeal, not runny or stiff.
  • 5If the grits get too thick toward the end of the cooking time, stir in a little hot water.
  • 6Serve hot.
