Cracker Barrel Grits

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup quick-cooking grits, not instant (I use Quaker)
  • 1/4 cup butter


In a small pot, bring water, milk, and salt to a boil.
Slowly stir grits into boiling mixture.
Stir continuously and thoroughly until grits are well mixed.
Let the pot return to a boil, cover pot with a lid, lower the temperature, and cook for approximately 30 minutes stirring frequently.
Add more water if necessary.
Grits are done when they have the consistency of stiff cream of wheat.
Stir in butter.
Serve with additional butter on top of each portion, or serve with fruit or with a savory meal.

  1. Stone ground grits are vastly superior to quick cooking or instant grits!
