This recipe was easy and tasty. The onions added a nice flavor. I also liked that it had less fat than some of the other recipes. I found that I had to add more milk than called for to keep it from getting too thick and sticking to the pot.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large saucepan, combine the water, milk, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt, and bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat and simmer over moderate heat until the onion and garlic are softened, about 3 minutes. Return to a boil and whisk in the grits. Cook over low heat, stirring frequently with a wooden spoon, until the grits are tender, about 25 minutes.
  3. Add the cheese, scallions, and thyme and stir until the cheese has melted. Transfer to bowls and serve.
