Stone Ground Cheese Grits


  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • ¼ cup butter (1/2 stick) or olive oil
  • 1cup The Old Mill’s stone ground grits
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • salt, fresh cracked pepper and crushed red pepper flakes to taste
  • Bring milk, butter or oil, salt pepper and crushed red pepper to boil.
  • Add grits and reduce heat to a simmer.
  • Stir often and until grits are tender and thickening.
  • This will take 30- 40 minutes. Stir in cheese and enjoy.
  • Serves 4-6
  • Serve for brunch with poached eggs or dinner with your favorite steak.
  • We use stone ground grits which are much coarser and thus take longer to cook, if you are using quick grits you will need to shorten your cooking time
  • I like to use a sharp, flavorful cheese like Simetons Four Year Old Cheddar or Locust Grove's La Mancha, but any of your favorites will work.
