This week we looked at South Carolina with the children, it grows more peaches than Georgia??? What? My world is shattered! I absolutely love seeing the kids try new things. NONE of them had tried grits before (with the exception of Liesl), and they all seemed to really enjoy them. I had mostly empty bowls in the dishwasher after, a very fine thing.
- 1 cup quick grits
- 1/2 tsp salt (add more to your taste, the parm is pretty salty)
- 1/4 cup parmesan
- 2 TBS butter
- 2 TBS heavy cream
Shredded mozzarella and cheddar (optional)
Boil the water and salt, whisk in the grits. Stir until thick (about 5-minutes). Add the parmesan, butter, and heavy cream. Remove from heat and let cool two minutes. Ladle into bowls and top with the extra cheese if desired, serve immediately. Obviously pairs well with sautéed shrimp in butter and garlic!
