A great weekday breakfast on your way out the door or when you arrive at work. Or top with a poached egg on a more leisurely weekend morning.
  • .25 c grits
  • .75 c skim milk
  • 2 t shredded cheese {I used a cheddar-jack mix - you should experiment with any mild cheese you have on hand}
  • .25 t grated parmesan
  1. In a medium-sized, microwave-safe bowl (bigger than a cereal bowl - it will bubble up just a bit), place .25 c grits and almost .75 c skim milk (reserve a little bit to stir in after it cooks).
  2. Microwave on medium power for 6 to 7 minutes.
  3. Stir in the remaining milk, and extra if you would like, until the grits have a creamy, thick consistency.
  4. Stir in cheeses of your choice.
  5. You may want to add a pinch of salt, because grits have no sodium, but your cheese may give it the flavor you need, so give it a taste first.
