I was out of regular grits and had to substitute quick-cooking. I reduced the cooking time by half and skipped Step #5 entirely. The salt was omitted, too because Parmesan supplies enough sodium for this recipe. We thought this was an outstanding grits dish and couldn't stop eating it. The only other change was adding about 1/4 cup finely minced onion instead of 2 tablespoons. Thank you for posting this recipe!
