Deep South Eats: Creamy Dreamy Grits

One of my favorite places to eat breakfast in my city is The Flying Biscuit. I have never been a huge fan of grits, but their Creamy Dreamy Grits are to die for. They are so fluffy and creamy that I could eat them alone for breakfast. I hope you will include them on your menu if you have any family breakfasts coming up this holiday season.


  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 cups quick cooking grits
  • 1 cup grated white cheddar cheese
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cubed
  • In a saucepan, combine water, half-and-half, salt and white pepper. Bring to a boil.
  • Slowly pour grits into boiling mixture while whisking continuously (the mixture is very hot and may splatter).
  • Reduce heat to low and continue to whisk often, until thick and completely smooth, about 10 minutes.
  • Add cheese and stir gently until cheese melts. Whisk again to combine.
  • Turn heat off and allow grits to rest 5 minutes.
  • Add butter and stir until completely smooth and shiny.
We halved the recipe and had more than enough!
