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.

How to Make HOT BUTTERED GRITS

Step-by-Step

  • 1In 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.
  • 2Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 5-7 minutes, until thick and creamy. Remove from heat. Stir in butter and serve.
  • 3If 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.
