  • 2 Cups Beef Stock Unsalted
  • 4 TBSP Organic Butter
  • 1 Cup Ground Grits
  • 1 TSP Kosher Salt
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar
  • Crumbled Bacon optional topping
  • Whole Kernel Corn optional topping


  • Add the stock and the butter to a pot that will be large enough for the grits to expand. Turn the head to medium-high. When the butter begins to melt, add in the grits and salt. Stir well and reduce the heat to low.
  • After about 12-15 minutes, the grits will start to release puffs of steam. Now is the time to add the cream. Stir well and continue to stir occasionally for the next 12-15 minutes. When the grits start talking again, add in the water. Stir to incorporate.
  • Continue stirring occasionally for the next 10 minutes or so. The grits should be super creamy and delicious. Taste just to make sure.
  • Turn off the heat. Add in the shredded cheddar and incorporate.
  • Serve hot, topped with some shredded cheese, bacon crumbles and a bit of whole kernel corn. Enjoy!
