Gluten Free Cheesy Grits
Serves: 2 - 4 servings
  • 3 cups of water
  • ⅔ cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Grits
  • 1 Tablespoon milk, half and half, or heavy cream
  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Hebamare (optional)
  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded or cubed
  1. Bring water to boil. Add grits, stir and immediately reduce heat to a very low simmer.
  2. Add ½ tsp. salt; stir. Cover with lid to keep spatter contained. Check and *stir frequently.
  3. *It’s really crucial that you stir often. You don’t want the grits to cook too quickly, so a very slow simmer for 25-30 minutes is optimal. Seasoning is very important, and you’ll likely use more seasoning than you think is necessary. Taste often. Grits are a blank canvas that must be seasoned, otherwise you will not love your grits.
  4. When grits **soften, season to taste with salt, garlic powder and (optional) Herbamare.
  5. **If grits cook too quickly and begin to stick before softening, make sure your heat is turned very low, add a little more water, stir and check frequently.
  6. Before serving, add cheese and stir to melt completely.
  7. Remove from heat and let sit, covered, 5 minutes prior to serving.
