POINTS® Value: 3
Servings: 4
Preparation Time: 5 min
Cooking Time: 15 min
Level of Difficulty: Easy
Grits can't be hurried. Start with stone-ground grits, not instant, and cook slowly, stirring, adding the cheese just before serving. Delicious with scrambled eggs.


1/2 cup(s) uncooked corn grits, stone-ground
1/2 cup(s) fat-free evaporated milk, divided

1/2 tsp table salt, or to taste

1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste

1/2 cup(s) low-fat shredded cheddar cheese, sharp-variety


  • Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a small pot and slowly stir in grits; reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring frequently, for 10 minutes.

  • Stir in 1/4 cup milk, salt and pepper; reduce heat to low and cook until milk is absorbed and grits thicken slightly, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes.

  • Stir in remaining 1/4 cup milk; cook, stirring occasionally, until milk is absorbed, about 2 minutes. Remove pot from heat and gradually stir in cheese; serve immediately. Yields about 1/2 cup per serving.


  • Sprinkle with salt before serving, if desired.
